I would like to upload video files through mediagallery that are larger than 8M and I get this message: "Your server configuration will only allow files 8M of smaller, and the total files uploaded must not exceed 8M"

Is this configure limitation set in geeklog? mediagallery? or a limit set by my web site host (godaddy)?

Detailed directions to increasing the file size limitations would be much appreciated.

Richard,

There is a FAQ entry at the Media Gallery Support site that covers this pretty well. You can view it here

Thanks!
Mark

Just in case anyone else has a similar question: As I understand it, the issue is not within Geeklog or Mediagallery files - so looking for the "php.ini" file which the above article refers to me does me no good. This file and the listed parameters are not there.

The link above does me no good since I am not managing my own server. (I have godaddy.com) To resolve the issue I found I must upgrade my account and then call my host and they will make the changes for me.

Its a deal - shaking hands

For people who want to know what goDaddy actually did for this guy:

All your size limits and timeouts are located in your php.ini file.

Scroll down towards the middle and look for Maximum size of Post. Mine is set at 500 MB. (I Know crazy but its a personal site)

Also, keep in mind to adjust the RESOURCE LIMITS category about execution and input times. As you increase post size you will need more time and resources for the post to make it successfully.

Mine are 600, 180 and 64M
