woodp Posted April 2, 2009 Report Share Posted April 2, 2009 As best I can tell, the default php settings at Hawkhost are upload_max_filesize = 50M ; post_max_size = 8M ; Wordpress uses these to determine whether or not to accept a file for upload. If you upload anything under 8M, no problem; but a 9M file results in an error that max upload size is 50M. Huh? Turns out that Wordpress expects post_max_size to be larger than upload_max_filesize and when it reports an error, it reports it as being larger than upload_max_filesize, even though it's really only larger than post_max_size. I got around this problem by uploading the following php.ini to the /public_html/wordpress/wp-admin subdirectory: <?php upload_max_filesize = 20M ; post_max_size = 25M ; ?>[/PHP] Today I tried to upload a 14M file and got another error that my file was larger than 50M. I guess my php.ini file is overlooked and php has defaulted back to the system settings. Litespeed? Or a new version of php? Anyone else having this problem with Wordpress? What's your workaround?
