share a file

How can a 1 gig file be sent.

Can a php uploader handle a 1 gig file

I dont want to use google drive or drop box because I need to sign up and person receiving needs to sign up.

File being shared between two people so I dont want to set up a torrent.

I don't think so.  You might be able to use the 'iniset' command.

No need to sign up here.

Simple and reliable to use.

All the PHP installs I am aware of limit uploads to much smaller file sizes.  An unmodified install starts at 2 MB.
Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

So if I do shared hosting then I can not modify php.ini file
Would I need dedicated or vps hosting?

Is there a php command to modify upload size limit?

to get around file size limits one can just use a file splitter and joiner. WinZip and WinRAR allow you to set a file size.  The internet is pretty stable these days but in the past one would split files into smaller chunks so there was less total size to download if something happened and the connection was lost.

for me; php seems easiest if I set file size limits with php code on my shared hosting plan

wetransfer is also easy but requires me to type my email
