    That's a server error.

    First of all, it is VERY unlikely that you will be able to successfully upload files of that size with a PHP/MySQL application such as vBulletin. PHP and MySQL are simply not set up to handle this.

    Second, to even give this a try, you will need to modify the server and all of your users will have to be on very fact connections.

    In addition to the vB settings, the allowed size of the attachments depends on the PHP and MySQL configuration. You may need to check and change the upload size for both PHP and for MySQL. Note, you'll need to have root
    access to the server to do this (or have your host do it.) Make these changes to php.ini:

    upload_max_filesize = xM

    ..and my.cnf (or my.ini for Windows systems)


    Change it to the size ('x') you want in Megabytes. Restart the webserver and MySQL after making these changes.

    Note: Do NOT use MB, just M for the megabytes setting.

    You may also need to increase the memory_limit, max_execution_time and max_input_time variables in php.ini.

    Also you might want to take a look at this for other settings that affect file uploads:

      2500000 is just 2.4 mb isn't it? Even if you could, that wouldn't allow you to upload 19mb. (19 X 1024 X 1024 = 19922944)
