Dear experts,
is it possible to increase the upload size of files, which is 50 MB by default?
Many thanks for your help.

Daniel.

Hi Daniel,

The maximum upload value is based on a few factors

1) What the default for new accounts is set to

2) What an individual account is set to

3) What the underlying operating system (OS) can handle

 

For (1) see https://manual.mahara.org/en/22.10/administration/extensions.html#plugin-file to adjust the default value

For (2) see https://manual.mahara.org/en/22.10/administration/users.html#account-settings to adjust the quota value for an individual

For (3) check the php.ini file used by your webserver on your machine to see that the 'post_max_size' and 'upload_max_filesize' are big enough to handle the quota size you want

Cheers

Robert
