Tuxedo Big File Uploads

Description

Increase file upload limit in the standard built-in WordPress media uploader. Uploads can be as large as available disk space allows.

No messing with Apache/PHP initialization files or settings. No need to FTP.

Simply activate the plugin and use the media uploader as you normally would.

The browser uploader option is not supported, the multi-file uploader must be used to enable large file uploads.

  • Small footprint that doesn’t bog down WordPress with unnecessary features.
  • Shows available disk space for temporary uploads directory or maximum upload size limit setting as maximum upload file size in media uploader.
  • Options for maximum upload size limit, chunk size and max retries are available under the Uploading Files section on the Settings -> Media page.

In essence the plugin changes the Plupload settings for uploads and points the AJAX url to the plugin. This processes the
upload in chunks (separate smaller pieces) before handing it off to WordPress.

Installation

  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/tuxedo-big-file-uploads directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress.
  3. Use the Settings -> Media -> Uploading Files screen to configure the plugin.

How big can uploads be?

Uploads can be as large as available disk space for temporary files allows, or up to the maximum upload size
limit set in Settings -> Media -> Uploading Files.

Why does the maximum file size decrease after an upload?

If no maximum upload size limit is set, then maximum file size is listed as the available free disk space for temporary uploads.
Free disk space will decrease as files are uploaded.
Additionally some systems use a separate partition for temporary files, free space may fluctuate as files
are uploaded and moved out of the temporary folder.

Reviews

Seems ok but slow

Never thought a plugin would be required for this, it should be native option in wordpress by now. Thanks for keeping it up to date. Works fine.
Tip: Edit settings to upload larger chunk size for faster upload speed.

Thank you Trevor

This plugin is perfect and amazing, fixes upload issues and increases upload size limit to 4gb. This Plugin was much needed. You rock Trevor

Funcionou perfeitamente

Testei várias formas e só conseguia upload de ficheiros de até 7MBs. Depois de instalar este plugin, já consegui ficheiros de até 100MBs. Recomendo.

GREAT PLUGIN!!!

This plugin was just what I needed. After switching web hosting services (not by choice) the capability of having a larger upload size was removed (or not converted over to new host). I reached out to hosting service to have it done, they said it was but, whenever I went to upload a file through my WP it didn’t show.

I did a plugin search and came across your product and it has been the do all to end all. Wish I could have come across it a few months ago. Thanks for a great product.

Perfection

Perfect plugin, changed my max upload limit from 2MB to 2TB instantly. Thank you!
