Description

A member is trying to upload a PDF file (11.2 MB) to a blog post using the "add files" from the "add media" menu above the post-writing box. When the user tries to upload the file, the following error message appears:

This file is too big. Your php.ini upload_max_filesize is 50M.

I just logged in as test student and experienced the same error. I guess we need to adjust the max settings . . . . and I'm guessing that the error message is a stock message that has nothing to do with the actual limit (which must be 10MB?).

André, if there is anything you can do to help with this, please let me know. And thanks!!

bump.

André, I'm running into this with another file, this time one that is 12.3 MB . . . can you look into this when you have a chance?

Thanks!

  • Category name set to WordPress (misc)
  • Status changed from Assigned to Reporter Feedback

Give me a call so that we can troubleshoot this. The file size limit set in php.ini is 50M.
Perhaps something else interrupts the upload. Did the dev team look at the logs or investigate this at all?

  • Status changed from Reporter Feedback to 3

post_max_size was too low (8M default), changed it to 50M.

Also: WP configuration had to be changed. File upload limit there was 11M.
