    Hey Team,

    I am trying to figure out how to connect to my server with a mac os x telnet to change the file upload info in the php.ini, and I am having the hardest time connecting to my server through the os x telnet.

    i have tried:
    ssh -l mylogin myserver.com

    and the server times out.

    I am lost with this one, and I would like to be able to upload larger files.

    Any help is appreciated.

    All the Best,

    Your best bet is asking your hosting company about this

    Howdy Orion,

    Your question is best suited for your host (like, for instance, ask 'em if they even offer SSH access).

    [hmm, I'm slowing down in my old age]

    Hey Team,

    Thanks, I contacted my host and upgraded my server. FYI, I run through http://diablovalleyhosting.com, which is a reseller of Go-Daddy.

    So if anyone else is running on Lynx through Diablo Valley Hosting or Godaddy, here is the solution.

    1-Make sure your server is upgraded to the latest edition, I had to bump from 1.0 to 2.0 in my hosting control panel.

    2-download a php.ini file,
    details about the file our at:
    location of a php.ini file:

    4-change the name of the downloaded file to "php.ini"

    3-Make changes to the file upload and posting parameters in the PHP.ini file (8m and 2m represent megs):
    post_max_size = 8M
    upload_max_filesize = 2M

    4-upload the new php.ini file to your root directory on your website

    And thats it.

    Thanks for the lead WP community!!!

    All the Best,

    BTY- there was no need for Telnet or SSH
