Support » Plugin: Enable Contributor Uploads » File size limit?

  • Plug-in does allow Contributor uploads, but they seem to be limited to 99Kb. Any larger and the following error is given:

    File is empty. Please upload something more substantial. This error could also be caused by uploads being disabled in your php.ini or by post_max_size being defined as smaller than upload_max_filesize in php.ini.

    I can confirm that post_max_size is set to 110Mb and upload_max_size is 100Mb.

    Hi Iain –

    Sorry we’re just seeing your question! The file size limits are all set by your server not our plugin. We recommend contacting your web host if you’re still experiencing this problem.

    Hey Amber,

    Thanks for the reply. Thing is, as an Editor I can upload files with no issue. If the exact same file is uploaded by a Contributor then the above errors are given. This can’t be down to a server setting, surely, as the server itself doesn’t differentiate between WordPress logins.

    Unfortunately we are unable to duplicate this error/issue on either our local development environment or on WP Engine hosting.

    Where are you hosted? Have you checked the settings on your php.ini file?
