Omeka and dreamhost file size


Not sure if anyone can help, but the Omeka forums have so far not been helpful.

I used dreamhost’s excellent one-click install of Omeka and everything has been up and running for awhile now. My problem comes from what I think (but may be wrong) is an issue between dreamhost and a plugin on omeka called dropbox. The plugin is supposed to allow for batch uploads of files. When I was with another host, batch uploads worked fine which is why I think the issue may be with dreamhost. Even single-file uploads only work about 50% of the time.

Does anyone have any experience using Omeka with dreamhost, or have any insight in to what this could be?



Is this a file size issue? Is it a PHP application? If so, you can increase your PHP upload size in ~/.php/54/phprc

Hi jmanko

Thanks for your response. I have previously made changes to the file you have suggested, but it doesn’t seem to make a difference. I can upload files, but it doesn’t always work. Maybe 50% of the time I get:

"404 Page Not Found

/admin/dropbox/index/add is not a valid URL."

The other 50% of the time they upload fine. Batch uploading never works though.
