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?
Thanks
Renate

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
/etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf.

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.
