Support » Fixing WordPress » Whole screen goes into a fritz when I try and upload media ?!

  • I’d be so grateful for any light anyone can shed.

    I recently changed the maximum file size of photos to upload by adding a php.ini file to my server root and (on advice from 1&1) my wp-admin folder.

    But what now happens is that even with smaller files, the media uploader got stcuk at the “crunching” stage.

    So I increased the memory allowance in (both) of the php.ini files and this now caused a huge screen fritz – like this.

    What is in your php.ini file?

    Thanks Esmi

    memory_limit = 64M

    upload_max_filesize = 32M

    post_max_size = 32M

    file_uploads = On

    Increase the memory limit to 256M. Also, I would not upload 32M images if I were you. Image processing is incredibly intensive and there really is no need for images that large on a web site.

    Thanks Esmi, trying that now, the max file size would probably be 12mb, I just wanted to allow for it in the imi file – is that putting a strain on my browser ?

    It’s the server that will feel the strain – not your browser. Even 12M is too large for a web image. I rarely (if ever) go much over 1M for an image. Most are considerably smaller.

    Thanks Esmi

    seems to be causing a Nvdia error crash, it’s frozen and forced a reboot three times
