raise storage space limit?
Samantha Valente asks "I am an administrative assistant at the CUNY Murphy Institute and we have a page under CUNY Academic Commons called New Labor Forum (http://newlaborforum.cuny.edu/) We have hit the 100 MB storage space limit. I was wondering if there is any way we can increase the storage space on our site?"

Matt, do you want to suggest a policy on this? We could probably nudge up the global per-site limit, but if a site like NLF has hit the current limit, it's likely they'll hit any modestly higher limit after not too much time.
Another option is to allow exceptions on a per-site basis. Given that we don't get requests of this nature very often (read: ever), we probably don't need to set the bar very high for sites that want more space. We can just give it to them if they ask, say, an extra 100MB at a time.

I went to make this change, but as far as I can see, the limit is disabled. Matt (or other super admins) have you changed this setting in the last day?
As it stands, no user should ever see a 100MB message.
Marilyn, could you please ask the user for a screenshot + specific URL where the limit was indicated?

Yesterday I wasn’t able to upload new media to the site and in the Dashboard under At a Glance it was showing a line that said storage 100MB, 100% full. I’m not seeing that today (I’ve attached the screenshot from today) and I was able to add new media.

Hmmm... trying to change upload quota at https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/wp-admin/network/site-settings.php?id=2425 but my changes to "Site Upload Space Quota" field are not saving.

There are some caching issues on the Commons that can make the /wp-admin/network/site-settings.php pages unreliable. Please check with me before trying to change anything there.
I've just made a cli-level change for this site, to a 200MB limit. Luke, can you please confirm it's working now?

Not sure what's happened. The large number of sites with > 100MB in uploads clearly shows that we have long had the upload limit disabled. And when I go to the Dashboard settings, it shows that the limit is disabled. Something must have changed in the last few days that caused this setting to be filtered or something, though I've no idea what that might be. Ray, any thoughts would be welcome.
In https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/506420d3cb2bf536387d7b0813de11deb2027b0d I have forced the limit to be disabled across the site, in code rather than in the settings. Can anyone who is experiencing the problem please confirm the fix?
