I have a phpbb forum and I want a few members to be able to upload large files and I have lot's of space and bandwidth. How would I go about customizing the max upload size? It there a way to do it through .htaccess, on the shared hosting plan?
This is controlled by php.inihttp://wiki.dreamhost.com/PHP.ini
The no-brainer route would be to run sXi's script, which is in the #1 link at the beginning of the article (at sabrextreme.com). Or follow the Wiki instructions to update the two "max" variables.
