UE4 Multiple upload problem

I've attached my file.

The problem is that all fields in the insert page work perfectly. Perfectly that is as long as I only do one upload at a time.

The page has 4 upload fields. 3 are for videos and one is for a web image that resizes etc, I can upload with any of the upload fields as long as it's on it's own. The moment I try to use two or more uploads at the same time it just fails. I've tried printing off errors and debugs but they just return blank information.

Any help with this would be gratefully accepted.

first, to be able to debug, you will need to remove the redirect:
$WA_redirectURL = "video_Detail.php";

$WA_redirectURL = "";

next, make sure the problem is not upload file size, try uploading 4 very small files, if that works, then the problem is the php server.

See the following page for information on settings that will control uploading of large file:

Hi Jason,

Many thanks as always. The problem was, indeed, upload file size. I "thought" that I had it set to 20M (which indeed I had) but that article pointed out various other settings that also needed to be set.

This is on my local machine with WAMP. I know that the remote server is set to 20M I just hope that the other settings are OK. We'll see.

Anyway thanks for the pointer. It may be that I'll have to split the uploads up a bit rather than try an "all at once" approach.

yeah, php can be tricky with large file uploads, the are a lot of settings that can come into play.

some of those settings can be modified using the php "ini_set" method to override the php.ini settings.

the following page lists all of the php.ini directives:

look at the changeable column for each directive, this page explains the meaning of each possible value for the changeable column:

so as an example, to change the memory limit, you could use:
<?php ini_set("memory_limit", "256M"); ?>

Just be aware that the server may be configured to ignore you attempted changes. you can see if your changes are taking effect using ini_get:


echo("Old Memory Limit: ".ini_get("memory_limit")."<br /"):
"New Memory Limit: ".ini_get("memory_limit")."<br /"):

Thanks Jason that's going to be very useful.

I actually "run" a VPS (not that I know what I'm doing mind you). The guys I rent it off of are very helpful and usually do things for me, but I am trying to learn as I go.

It gives me a bit more control over what I can achieve for my clients. Asking some hosts to increase max_file_size from 2M is like asking for the moon to stop :-)
