max file size CK Editor

Hi Ray

I'me trying to limit the maximum file uplod size to 2mb.

I have altered webassist/kcfinder/conf/config.php so that

'_dropUploadMaxFilesize' => 2097152,

But this hasn't worked.

I've modified the allowed file extensions on the same page successfully.

Cheers

Chris

It seems like that should work. Are you still getting the same file too large error message? Maybe it is the image dimensions not the file size causing the error? I'd need FTP access and a URL to see the error with the file you are using to fully debug this.

Hi Ray

Thanks - no error message, someone has just uploaded a 16.6 Mb file without any error message.

Details in pm.

Try adding this to the top of the config file:

ini_set("upload_max_filesize","2M");

Thanks Ray - Unfortunately, that doesn't make any difference.

Do you need different upload size limits on other areas of your site? You could update it in your php.ini file.

Is php.ini on the server, or a file in my site? I don't have server access on the live site.

No cpanel access?

You may be able to change it in your .htaccess file:

php_value upload_max_filesize 2M

The trouble with that is that the HQ staff wouldn't be able to ftp a larger file (e.g. video) to the site. I was hoping this could be done in the CK settings, so that only users were limited.

You can usually do separate .htaccess files for different folders. You may be able to just limit it for the kcfinder folder.
