The following is a piece I wrote for the 1.0 Help Screens and covers the settings that may need adjusting.There is usually an upper limit to the size of image files that can be uploaded through the Media Manager. This upper limit is indicated by, for example, "[Max = 8M]", which indicates that files bigger than 8 megabytes cannot be uploaded. This limit is set in the PHP configuration file (php.ini) and may differ between web servers and web hosts. The limit cannot be altered from within Joomla! Some hosting companies do not allow the limit to be altered at all!
To allow larger files to be uploaded it will probably be necessary to increase the upload_max_filesize and the post_max_size settings.
For very large files it may also be necessary to increase the max_execution_time and the memory_limit settings.
Ok, I already tryit, but my requirements are for 1G file, so I configured like this:

And what was the result? I could´t make a session in my web site(for go to the download site, you have to be login

That´s mean, I have to set it back the Php file. Ok, I did it! But I need to make the system able to upload bigger files, so I tryit again!
