  • Increase the limit of upload sizes

    Title says it all, Can anyone help me out?

    Admin Control Panel > Attachments > Extentions

    Here you can edit various attachment extention values like max-filesize.

      note some servers, have in their conf files the max upload so if you run into problems you may have to ask your host to edit their httpd.conf and maybe my.conf

        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: You may also need to increase the 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:
