This file is too large to / Error 403: : INVALID IMAGE FILE

Postby ctopping1 » Thu Feb 14, 2013 5:26 pm

Not sure if these two items are related.

1. I can't upload through the media manager. Getting a "This file is too large to upload" error. I've read a few other forums about making sure the upload max, etc is set in the php.ini file. Both are set to 20M.

2. When I try to upload a file using the JCE editor I'm getting this error: "Error 403: : INVALID IMAGE FILE"

The version of Joomla is 2.5.7
Windows IIS7

Any help would be great. Thanks

This issue is caused by some entries in the custom php.ini file you are using (in the Joomla! root folder).

You have set a few open_basedir paths for the site, but you do not have an upload_tmp_dir value set - when this is the case PHP uses the system default which is not within the open_basedir restrictions you have set.

Adding an upload_tmp_dir value to the php.ini that is within the open_basedir restrictions seems to fix this problem.

There is no custom php.ini file in the root of this Joomla site?
