I would like to set Apache and PHP  running on Mac server to accept upload file sizes up to 100meg.

Can anyone list the settings I would need in Apache and PHP?

 I've seen a lot of references to timeout problems, what value should the timeout be set for to ensure a 100 meg file is uploaded?

Thanks QueKay

In your php.ini file you'll want to modify the following settings:


; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.

upload_max_filesize = 50M
 

; Maximum size of POST data that PHP will accept.

post_max_size = 50M

consider these factors in file php.ini since they're related to each other and even have formula to set them up properly but dont remember formula to post here

Find:
post_max_size = 8M
upload_max_filesize = 2M
max_execution_time = 30
max_input_time = 60
memory_limit = 8M

Change to:
post_max_size = 750M
upload_max_filesize = 750M
max_execution_time = 5000
max_input_time = 5000
memory_limit = 1000M
