    Well I set all usergroups to 0 and I suspect it's a problem with a plugin.
    I guess I should really be posting this in the 3.6 section but since I use plugins, I'm on my own.

    Edit: I fixed the problem by running the rebuild bitfields using tools.php.

    Yep

    I agree. I got that bit from another post. But the rest I did for myself.

    Shouldn't the higher number superceed the lower? For instance, if that user has attachment size set to 0 in any of their usergroups, it shouldn't matter.

    TWO settings necessary

    OK I had this too anbd I am a new install, no upgrade.

    You have to set the limit to 0 (zero) - or high, in the Usergroup concerned
    AND the same in the main admin CP/ vb options/ Message attachment options

    You also need to check that the user having probs is not being overrode by a secondary usergroup status.

    I just upgraded from 3.5.x to 3.6.2. I am now getting this file exceeds limit where I was not before. I have checked what I would expect to be the appropriate places and as far as I can see all settings are set to 0.

    Mind being a bit more explcit about where this file size limitation was imposed?

    I know for a fact we have our Php set to 30 megs so a 400k limit came from the wonderful upgrade. If I seem a little harsh so be it, I don't expect an upgrade to change all of my settings and upgrading this time was an absolute nightmare.

    This is a Usergroup option:

    Space (in bytes) that a user's total attachment usage may consume
    (Set to 0 to not have a limit)

    The only limits per post are the number of attachments, not the combined file size.

    I thought that setting was per post, not for the forum as a whole.

    started a topic Attachment Quota Problem

    Attachment Quota Problem

    The moderator of one of our forums is having problems uploading an attachment. The error she is getting is "file size exceeds the forum quota limit by 85.15k"

    My "Limit Space Taken Up By Attachments (Total)" is set to 5242880 bytes.

    Under Attachment permissions for her user group(Moderator), the "Space (in bytes) that a user's total attachment usage may consume" is set to 0 for no limit. Any ideas?

    I as the Administrator am also getting the same error.
