Increase the Upload File Size Limit

When uploading files in the browser the maximum file size is limited by server configuration. WP-Filebase does NOT have a file size limit!

To uploading larger files, the upload_max_filesize and post_max_size need to be increased in php.ini.

If your server configuration allows it you can add this line to your .htaccess:

php_value upload_max_filesize 30M

If you are on managed/shared hosting, ask your hosting provider to change these values!

    I don’t understand your post. You write “WP-Filebase does NOT have a file size limit” and write to extend the upload_max_filesize and post_max_size. It looks like, WP-Filebase have a file size limit which depends on php.ini limit. I know the main limit is the php function, but it is a limit for WP-Filebase…

    It would be nice, if WP-Filebase have really no limit and is able (like “pupload” or simular) to upload big files even if upload_max_filesize is only 8M…

    “WP-Filebase does NOT have a file size limit” means that the plugin itself does not limit upload size, it is limited by server config.

    I’m not aware of how to allow uploads larger than upload_max_filesize, only way I see is that the browser splits the files and uploads it in chunks.

    Do you any upload handlers with this functionality?

    Yes, it is called Plupload. I tried a wordpress plugin which works good for uploading files to wordpress mediacenter. Don’t know if you allow different URLs, but you are able to find it at http://www.plupload.com/.

    It is a upload handler for any Content Management Systems which supports chunking…

    I made this change in my .htaccess file. I get this error Error -600: File size error when I tried to download a 25 MB file.

    so what you’re saying is that you should go back to the drawing board and enable file chunking like all the other upload plugins? was just about to purchase the pro version, glad i googled first. 🙁

    i will never find a reliable s3 upload solution with front end capabilities that can handle a 300mb file.

    Just wanted to provide some feedback.

    On my hosting provider, the change to htaccess didn’t work at all, site wouldn’t load. Rather than bother trying to figure it out, I just added the following two lines to php.ini

    upload_max_filesize = 8M
    post_max_size = 8M

    Works like a champ, now can upload files up to 8MB large.

    I have just created a WP website and would like to use WP-FIlebase for file management. I have my php.ini file max upload filesize set for 32MB. When using the built-in WP Media “Add New” function, I can upload files as large as 32 MB. When using the WP-Filebase Add New function, uploads fail for any file larger than 8 MB. Can someone explain that? or how to fix it?
