I do appoligies if this is already here somewhere but i did take a look and found nothing. I want to change the upload limit in my PHP.ini on my server so i can upload bigger files on my forum. Could someone please tell me how to go about doing this. I can display the info for my php.ini but when it comes to PHP thats about it so everything will have to be explained.
Files are usually POSTed to the webserver in a format known as 'multipart/form-data'. The post_max_size sets the upper limit on the amount of data that a script can accept in this manner. Ideally this value should be larger than the value that you set for upload_max_filesize.
It's important to realize that upload_max_filesize is the sum of the sizes of all the files that you are uploading. post_max_size is the upload_max_filesize plus the sum of the lengths of all the other fields in the form plus any mime headers that the encoder might include. Since these fields are typically small you can often approximate the upload max size to the post max size.
then you either have to contact the system admin, and have them do it... or.. i don't know They probably have the ability to change ini settings disabled, hense why the ini code wildhoney gave didn't work...
