Custom Php Install?

I need a higher upload rate for PHP. currently its set at 7mb, but i need it changing to 150mb,

I contacted the sales team and they pointed me to this:

http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/Installing_PHP5

It looks very complicated to me and im a bit scared,

Plus i dont even know what i need to change to change the PHP upload rate to 150mb :S

Help please!

In Noob form if you can :stuck_out_tongue:

This whole issue of increasing the maximum file size of a PHP upload is probably one of the most frequently asked, and answered, questions in these forums. You will find many threads dealing with this - just use the search feature of the forum.

A complete custom php install is a bit of an overkill for simply adjusting your max_upload_file_size, and is much more complicated than what you need to do to achieve that goal.

I suggest just using the default DH install of php with your own custom php.ini file to change the size of files you can upload with PHP.

It is a much simpler process to complete, though you will need shell access and a basic understanding of what is going on in the nix shell.

Frankly, I fail to understand why so many inexperienced users seem to think this is necessary or desirable - there are loads of free perl scripts out there that are easy to install that do not limit the size of a file upload and you always have ftp available for uploading. At any rate - the above paragraph points you to the easiest way to do what you want. Good Luck!

I’ve done on the past as the wiki says and it is really easy to change to 100MBs
