Setting the size of file to upload

Setting the size of file to upload

Dear Jason,

I was doing some testing on uploading jpeg images. I uploaded an image on my local server that was 1406KB and the upload gave me the attached error.

According to <?php phpinfo(); ?> - my limits for upload are 2mb and my max post size is 8mb.

Any other reason for this error?

Because of this error, I've noticed here in the forum, there is a limit on the size of files that can be sent to web assist.

Can these settings/limits be set with the upload extension?

that error can happen when you set the upload behavior to resize the image. resizing the image can take a lot of memory on the server.

to increase the server memory, you can add the following code at line 1:

php:
<?php

ini_set
("memory_limit""256M")
?>

Jason,

I've put the code at the beginning of the page 'add_member.php' and I've got a different error - see attached - when I upload the 1406kb jpg

Jason, excellent, that worked.

I'm just wondering, if resizing takes alot of time, should I limit the size of the file sent as WebAssist does?

How is this done?

you can limit the uploaded file size if you like, it is entirely up to you.

In Server Validations, use the Numeric validation type. From the Bindings panel, select the "<file field name> File Size" binding.

In the numeric validation, set the maximum to the size in bytes you would like to allow.

Jason,

I tried to interpret your instructions.

I have attached a screenshot of what I did.

Files greater than 1000kb are loading and this shouldn't be the case - based on my selection.

FYI: the field name in the form and the database table is called 'photo'.

you are using the binding for file size from the WA Uploaded Files binding group. This binding does not have a value till the file is saved to the server.

Use the file Size bindind from the Form binding group.
