Supplementary Files maximum size limit

Postby sanchitgangwar » Sun Oct 14, 2012 12:28 pm

I want the user to be able to upload video with the article. I tried uploading it as "Supplementary Files" but it didn't work.

I think this is due to the fact, that the videos are huge ~ 100MB. How can I increase the file limit.

Or is there any other way to upload videos?

Any help is appreciated.

Hi sanchitgangwar,

Those are large files, and I suspect that even if you alter PHP's ability to handle such large files (there are two configuration settings in php.ini for file upload size and POST data size), you may still have problems because of time outs with your web server. On a slow internet connection, your users may not be able to upload files that large.

If I was dealing with this sort of problem, I would probably upload my files through a traditional FTP or SSH connection and then decide how to include a reference to that file from my article. Since OJS supports galley files in HTML and PDF format, perhaps you can link to the files through conventional means?
