Joomla ignoring upload_max_filesize override

Post by jgold723 » Thu May 15, 2008 1:03 pm

My host defaults to an upload_max_filesize of 2M. Following the instructions of my host, I placed a php.ini file in the root directory (the same directory my Joomla 1.0.15 installation is living) with an upload_max_filesize of 5M. Joomla, however, ignores this. When I check the PHP info in the Joomla system area, it continues to read 2M.

How do I get Joomla to recognize the override?

Thanks,

John

That's because php is not recognizing the change... Contact your host, and tell them you've been having problems with it, and ask for their help...

Well, that's the strange thing. If I run a php_info file (again, in the root directory) it does recognize the override. Is this still a host issue, or a Joomla issue?

Thanks,

John

Go to System Info (under help) in the J! administrator interface... There's a phpinfo tab in there... what does that say?

That sees the upload_max_filesize as 2M -- so it seems to be ignoring my override.

I have exactly the same problem. I have put the php.ini files all over the place (www dir, joomla installation dir, administrator dir etc) but with no results.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

This was a while back, but I seem to remember that I had to ask the hosting company to set up the upload override.

to anyone else with this problem- if you are on VPS or dedicated server you need to change PHP settings in WHM by going to "PHP Configuration Editor". In there you can change both memory_limit and upload_max_filesize. both of these have no affect inside php.ini unless you chaneg them in WHM. If you are not using VPS or dedicated server you will need to ask your host to do this for you
