Why can't I make the upload size for regular members more than 10 MB.,? I even tried typing in 15850 kb in the Feature Options panel in the admin center but it still shows 10 MB when i try to upload a file…help ! :|

This is limited by the PHP installation on your server.

Our FAQ said

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

  • 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 Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • 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 Composr 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.
