Problem with iploading PDF files as galleys

Postby renatem » Mon May 07, 2007 11:26 am

I want to upload PDF files above 570 kb and then I get no explicit error message, but the following. One file of 240 kb did not give a problem. The HTML files
I have edited the php.ini file and increased the 8 M limit to 12, but still no success. I am using PHP 4.3.3.
Any solution?

The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Hi renatem,

From docs/FAQ:
2) Uploads of large files fail inexplicably.

A: This can be caused by certain Apache or PHP settings.

Apache 2.x has a LimitRequestBody directive that, if set to a low number, can
lead to this behaviour. In particular, the default PHP packages for recent
versions of Red Hat Linux set LimitRequestBody to 524288 bytes in

Low values for the PHP ini settings like post_max_size (default "8M"),
upload_max_filesize (default "8M"), and memory_limit (default "8M") can also
cause this problem.
