WP eCommerce
we-ecommerce does not support downloadable products larger than 7MB right? (3 posts)

    Hi all - I have a store that sells large digital files (currently the store is custom made). I would like to transfer the store over to using WP Ecommerce, but it looks like there is a maximum upload of 7mb - this is much too small for me. My downloadable product files range in size from about 500MB to about 5GB.

    I've seen there is an Amazon S3 plugin for storage of product files, but I can't see any information about whether this plugin would increase the file size limitation.

    As far as I can see unfortunately it looks like WP-Ecommerce isn't capable of meeting my requirement.

    Can anyone verify for me: is there any way to sell large (GB+) digital downloads using WP-ecommerce?

    Any guidance greatly appreciated.

    I believe that tHe 7MB upload limit are the same PHP settings that stops WordPress from uploading large files. I don't believe there is any limit inside of wp-e-commerce.

    You probably need to adjust the upload limits on your WordPRess host. The php.ini settings you want to look for are probably 'upload_max_filesize' and 'post_max_size'.

    For a client I fixed a site that had problems with downloading files in the 500MB range, so there's no *inherent* limit apart from the PHP settings. However you almost certainly need to apply this fix:
    to avoid exhausting memory.
