php changing max file upload size

Hello,

I'm using doteasy to host my website and I'm trying to figure out how to change the max file upload size.  It's currently set to 8388608 bytes but I need more since I'm storing videos.  I can't find a php.ini file anywhere, is this not possible with doteasy?

Doteasy has no limit to upload file size to ftp except for the space you have on your account.
If you're using the websites file uploader, I would recommend getting a ftp program like WinSCP.
http://winscp.net/
just start session enter in the ftp host, username and password, all of which should be found on your doteasy account page.

If you are trying to change html code for users to upload bigger file sizes, you should put something like this in the html code.
<input type="hidden" name ="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="2000000">
you should probably use ftp though as HTML uploads of large files is bad for server performance.

I get POST Content-Length of 26246328 bytes exceeds the limit of 8388608 bytes, that would lead me to believe the server is enforcing that right?  I'm using a flash plugin to upload to php.  The plugin has max file size set to 100mb....

I'm not surprised the Server is enforcing it. Doteasy is among those webhosts that won't allow you to change your php.ini or .htaccess files without calling them and asking them to do it for you (many reasons for this). Doteasy enforces a maximum upload size for anything except ftp to avoid affecting server performance. WinSCP is free and easy to use if you don't have a nice ide like dreamweaver.

I can just use their admin tool if I have to upload files manually.  I was hoping to have my website support adding some video files by the admin user.  Thanks for the info.

In that case you would need to write some php code to open a stream and write the file in small buffered sizes, but WinSCP is easy, and I would suggest setting up a limited access ftp account for your admin user to be able to ftp files directly

I think ie the default PHP max upload configuration, please upload info.php to the serve and navigate it trough internet explorer.

Search the word "upload_max_filesize"

If the problem is this value, you can change it trought the file .htaccess


info.php
