Vaildate Upload File Size

Vaildate Upload File Size

I have followed some examples on this forum, to validate the upload file size.

It works when I test locally using MAMP, but not when I upload and test on the cPanel server.

I suspect it is uploading before checking the file size, rather than on button click.

I have PHP "upload_max_file_size" set to max out at 50mb

The file upload works OK under 50 mb, but on test of a 64mb file, the upload just fails and no validation occurs

"I suspect it is uploading before checking the file size"

yes, that is exactly right. using server validation, the validation cannot be performed until the form data, including the file, have been sent to the server. if the uploaded file is bigger than what the server will allow, the server terminates the post, so validation cannot be completed.

see the "Customizing Error Messages" tutorial on the eCart support page for details on showing an error if upload fails:
