UE4 File Upload not working

**THIS ISSUE HAS BEEN NOT BEEN RESOLVED**

-------------read on----------------

I created a simple form with the DataAssist Wizard and made one form fields a file upload field:

[...deleted URL...]

The form captures all of the other form data and in FF,Chrome & IE8 I can see that the file is being uploaded. However, only a few times has either the file shown up in the upload directory or the filename shown up in the upload db column.

It seems that most files under 2 MB have successfully gone through while files over 2 MB have not. I'm at my wit's end.

I've followed the instructions in the PDF file "Adding Digital File Pro to DataAssist Insert and Update Pages" to a tee. No luck. Nor is there any mention of a file size limitation. I really want to use this, but not if it's this difficult to set up.

Any thoughts?

Back to WA for answers...

My "php_value upload_max_filesize" was set to 2MB, which I thought was the problem. However, setting it to 8MB still did not work. I've been on tech support with Rackspace Cloud Sites (my host) and the two of us couldn't track down any reason for the scripts failure since there are no errors displayed in the browser or logged by the server. As far as PHP, MySQL and Apache are concerned, the script appears to be working fine.

Now I'm back here hoping WA can help me figure out why files larger than 1.6MB are not being saved to the upload directory or being written to the db.

Any help?

Here's the URL:
insert.php

the upload max file size setting is only a small part of uploading larger files.

there are other settings such as max_execution_time, max_input_time and post_max_size that can also play a roll.

If the post_max_size is set to a value larger than the upload_max_filesize, then the entire form post will be rejected by the server.


Also, the script may time out before the post can complete if the max_execution_time or max_input_time settings are not set correctly.

See the following page for details on large file uploads:
wap_upload.asp?page=php2

Thanks

Not sure what, in the end, it was a combination of. But that was a very helpful page that I've now bookmarked. Thanks again!
