  • Increase the limitations of file uploads

    Hey

    Currently only an x amount kb per file can be uploaded, this is very small. And a lot of my users are unable to upload their images.

    In the Attachment Uploads section, within the edit/options of a Usergroup I have it set to "0" which is says disables limits. Yet it doesn't.

    Is there any place else I need to amend in order to increase the size of uploads?


    Regards,
    Chris

      Besides the attachment settings in vB, your servers setup will prohibit or allow larger uploads.

      You need to take into account phps max upload limit, mysqls max allowed packet, and the scripts max execution time.

      All of these are server wide changes and can only be accomplilished by the host.

      If you are storing files in the filesystemr ather than the database. You only need to worry about php's max upload and the script execution time, granted you are not running in safemode.

        I'm aware of limitations, but I seriously doubt my server can't handle anything above 32kb, even by default without any changes to server...

          Did you check the maximums set for different Attachment filetypes?
