Max Upload File Size

I just set up a custom php.ini to increase the max file size upload like explained here I set it up to 50M and it seems to work fine.

Now I’m wondering what is the maximum possible value to use. I just read in another thread that the maximum in apache is 2G, does this mean that I can set the post_max_size and upload_max_filesize in the php.ini configuration to 2000M? it sounds too good…

Apache upload is a painfully poor method for uploading huge files. I stick with a max of 100 megs, and if I need to upload more, I use SFTP.
