Increase upload file limit


I’m using drupal and I’m stuck with 4mb upload limit
I tried using the .htaccess file with below information, but It didn’t work.

php_value post_max_size 8M
php_value upload_max_filesize 8M

Is dreamhost support this feature or the max upload size is just 4mb?
Any idea?



The DreamHost PHP upload file-size limit is 7-8 MB, so if you are limited to 4MB you might should check your Drupal settings.

If you need to change the PHP upload filesize limit, you can do it by:

  1. Compiling your own version of PHP

  2. Using a copy of DH’s PHP-CGI with your own php.ini file



Ok thanks!
Yes in fact there is a setting in drupal, but underneath it was saying the server limit was set 4mb.
I set 7mb in drupal anyway and it worked.

If I want more that 7-8mb I’ll try the other 2 solutions, even though I don’t know how to do them.
