Configuring PHP.INI

Increasing the following variables allows for handling much larger files, the default values are set quite low which can cause issues when uploading large media files.

  • memory_limit,
  • post_max_size
  • upload_max_filesize
  • max_execution_time

The "short_open_tag" value should be Off (On will likely still work, but any problems with Off should be reported).

If you do not have access to the php.ini file (for example, because you are using an ISP) then you may be able to override the settings by creating a file named '.htaccess' in the root folder with the following contents:

SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off
php_value memory_limit 200M
php_value post_max_size 100M
php_value upload_max_filesize 100M
php_value short_open_tag Off
