Upload file limit?

Postby olafe » Fri Jul 08, 2005 1:00 pm


I'm trying to upload mp3 versions of articles into the supplementary category. I find that relatively large files (say around 1 MB) are not being uploaded but files around 400K upload just fine. Is there a limit on the file sizes I can upload? Can this be changed?

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.
