OCS refuses to upload submissions larger than 1 MB

Postby tomphilippi » Sat Jan 30, 2010 2:27 am

We have installed the recent OCS and are using it to handle submissions for a conference. However, recently we encountered a problem; apperantly, any upload of a file larger than inbetween 1 and 2 MB in fails:

Specifically: in the browser during step 3 of the submission process, I select the file I want to upload and select 'upload'. I wait for some time and than the browser refreshes but the file does not appear to be uploaded. Since I get no error message, I am puzzled for the cause of this problem. Does anyone has any ideas?

The serverspace is sufficient (14 GB left) and during installation I set my php-restrictions from 8 to 64 MB. What else can it be?

Perhaps increase the memory and time out in php.ini as well. If you increase the upload size, you want to allow more time on the server to accept large files.
