I'm trying to find what and where to edit to increase the download file size from 2MB to something higher.

I went to Admin Zone >Setup >Feature Options

I found this:
The maximum filesize a non-staff member can upload (in kilobytes)


But is there a place to increase it in general?

Thanks!

Hi,

Answer from FAQ:

How do I get more than <just a few megabytes> of upload support? said

PHP defines its own upload limits, which ocPortal can not exceed. Try renaming the bundled 'recommended.htaccess' file to '.htaccess'; if this fails, you will need to persuade the server administrator to increase the PHP 'post_max_size' and 'upload_max_filesize' options.


Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

server administrator is basically your web host.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.
