This may be controlled by your web host. A lot of shared hosting plans have a max 2mb upload limit. Some web hosts let you change that. Some do not. You can contact your hosting provider and ask if they can change it. There are ways to change it yourself with a php.ini file and/or .htaccess file, but, it all depends on your web host.
hi, have similar question: is the max upload size limit set in Una, or is it totally dependent on my hosting? yesterday I uploaded 4.5mb file to my user cover, so if others are able to upload such large files the site will become slow very fast.
Is there an option to limit max size, or I have to do that in htaccess?
In Studio panel->Permissions system app you may find 2 columns "Max File Size" and "Max Files". Just press "edit" icon near wished level and setup this limits in appeared popup (Max File Size in Megabytes), then press "Save".
You need to be sure that your site uses the actual PHP.ini for this server. What values are shown in Studio->Dashboard->Host Tools->server audit area. What values have now "post_max_size " and "upload_max_filesize " parameters?
The next problem I have faced is this: After uploading a large file (~68MB) the upload dialogue box closes, but the file is not reflected in the new file form. (See images) . It is like there is no image to submit. Do you have an idea of why this happens and how I can fix it?
So it turns out that my CPanel php settings page showed 128M for the Max_post_size, but the php.ini file showed 8M. Once I updated the php.ini file the upload was allowed to continue. Thanks to LeonidS for asking me for the server audit details since that alerted me to the discrepancy between the CPanel page and php.ini file.
