Support » Plugin: MediaPress » Upload file size error

  • Resolved SciFiKriss


    Hi ya

    I am trying to upload a picture to the activity stream and getting this message.

    The image is already in the media library so I know that part works.

    Friendship-by-Merlin2525.png(690 kb)x Server can not handle this much amount of data. Please upload a smaller file or ask your server administrator to change the settings.

    Thanks in advance

    Kriss 🙂

    Thank you Kriss.
    The problem lies with the file upload size config

    PHP Upload Max Size: [500]
    PHP Post Max Size: [68]
    PHP Upload Max Filesize: [500]

    They should be something like
    PHP Upload Max Size: 500K // or M etc
    PHP Post Max Size: 68K // or M etc
    PHP Upload Max Filesize: 500K // or M etc

    It seems WordPress default upload is using a fallback value which we don’t do in MediaPress.

    Can you please update your php.ini with correct value(with unit and there should not be a bracket). You may also ask the hosting support to do it for you.

    That will fix it. Please update and let me know.

    Ok I will have a look at it.

    Thank you Kriss.

    Please do know that I used Incorrect unit in my previous answer, It should be ‘M’ not ‘MB’

    Wondered why it came back with an HTTP error! 😛 🙂

    Kriss 🙂

    Ok now it is working…

    Thanks 🙂

    Plugin Author Brajesh Singh


    🙂 sorry about that. I hope the change works.

    Looking forward to your feedback.
