I followed the instructions on http://wiki.dreamhost.com/PHP.ini but still see no changes in the upload size limit.
I don't have much experience with SSH but I was able to do the following:
create the 2 directories, write the directives. If I FTP my server now, I see a file named phprc.save.2 (and phprc.save and phprc.save.1) inside the /.php/5.3 directory. If I open this file, I can see the directives I wrote - all in one line.
I would appreciate if someone could point me out what I'm missing here. As I mentioned, I have little experience with SSH, so it wouldn't surprise me if it's something silly.
Thanks a lot.
