I have recently started PHP and Mysql project development on Ubuntu. In one part of the project I need to upload files. But my script is not uploading anything larger than 1 MB nor does it show any error. Smaller files are uploading fine. So I think my script is ok. Besides I have made suitable changes in both php.ini and my.cnf files. Can someone please tell me other possible reasons for this?
You can do it in 2 ways, by editing the
php.ini file or using
If you edit the
php.ini file which is located in
Find the value that says upload_max_filesize and change it to the value you wish, for example here I have a max upload file size of 100M
upload_max_filesize = 100M
Now you also need to edit the post_max_size that PHP will work with through POST, for that we edit the value to whatever you want, I recommend same as upload:
post_max_size = 100M
In the case you wish to do it with
.htaccess, simply create this file in the root folder of you web site and add the following lines:
<IfModule mod_php5.c> php_value upload_max_filesize 100M php_value post_max_size 100M </IfModule>
.htaccess does not work 100% of the time because it depends on Server settings. On your localhost it will work perfectly but if you are hosting on a shared site or an external address, the server might have limits to the max size that can be uploaded.
To show errors in PHP, edit your
php.ini file and change:
display_errors = on
Restart your apache server.
Then in your project
config.php file (if you have one), add these lines:
/* errors handling */ error_reporting(E_ALL); ini_set("display_errors",1); ini_set('log_errors',0); ini_set('error_log','path/to/log/file');
During development, set
When deployed, change
Then just be periodically checking your log file for any logged errors.
