A drupal website i run gets an error that says the php limit is 2Mb. i changed it to 10 from /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini. This doesn't make any change (im using a phpinfo to look if any change to upload limit has happened). Can anyone suggest what can be done?


There is an interesting page on the Drupal website about this, it was the first answer a well known search engine provided to drupal file upload size. THe second answer also on the drupal website is quite informative too.

Drupal's limits on upload file size are determined by your server's PHP settings (as well as Drupal specified settings that can be set at Admin > Site Configuration > File Upload). The default values for PHP will restrict you to a maximum 2 MB upload file size.

it goes on to suggest that you may need to adjust both

  • upload_max_filesize
  • post_max_size
  • I remember a situation where I had to put the file size a multiple of 2 (I've put it 48MB instead of 45), otherwise some anomalies were occurring (cant remember the specifics), but it's a good to know thing. – Overmind Feb 27 '15 at 6:43
  • I tried 10 and 12 so, they both are multiples of 2. – Arun Anson Feb 28 '15 at 17:08
  • @lain i know that there is a portal for drupal. But this question i am having is about php upload limit. I just specified that i am using a drupal site on the webspace. I'm still stuck. – Arun Anson Feb 28 '15 at 17:11
  • The thing about a SE Drupal site is that it will attract Drupal experts. – Iain Feb 28 '15 at 21:43
