I setup a section where mp3 files could be uploaded. I did a test with a few files that were under 6MB.

I then set up something similar for a customer's site. Although I have set the permission to unlimited I cannot seem to upload larger files. I was able to ftp a file that was 45MB but no luck using CMS for a 9MB file. This customer has audio sermons that will be in the 15-40MB range. Can someone help?

Hi dunlap,

Are you running the latest version? If so, can you click on "Show server upload limits" link below: Admin > General Settings > Upload Folder URL

That should show you your web hosts limits that you can ask your host change to allow for larger uploads.

Hope that helps!

I'm running version 1.13 on my server. I also wanted to not that when it timed out it put the CMS start page in the window where I initially browsed for the upload. It did this in both versions.

Hi there!

Yep, you'll need to be running at least 1.19 to see that functionality, so it won't show up in 1.18. Try upgrading, and that should give you a hand. :)

That link just displays upload limits. You can also try the phpinfo details with this url: admin.php?menu=admin&action=phpinfo

Or just download a phpinfo script and check these values:

file_uploads
max_input_time
post_max_size
upload_max_filesize

These will often tell you what restrictions you host has put on uploads. Sometimes you can change then by modifying a .htaccess or php.ini file but it depends on the host. Best to check and then ask your host.

Hope that helps!

Hi Jerry,

They're PHP settings. post_max_size limits how much data can be submitted through a form (forms use the method called "GET" or "POST" to submit data). And upload_max_filesize limits the max size of an upload file itself.

They do seem to overlap a bit in functionality. That happens in PHP a fair bit. :) The key thing is to make sure they're both large enough to allow your uploads.

Here's links to the PHP docs:
http://www.php.net/manual/en/ini.core.php#ini.post-max-size
http://www.php.net/manual/en/ini.core.php#ini.upload-max-filesize

Hope that helps!
