I'm working on a site with joomla and I'm trying to permit registered users [friends/family] to upload home videos through the front end of my site. I'm wanting to do this with the remository component that is available for joomla.
Anyways, I've run into problems with the 7mb limit placed on php uploads by DH.
I've searched around the forums and saw several suggestions saying that it should be possible to bypass this limit by compiling php4 on my webspace. So, that is what I did last night following the instructions for ssh access and php4 installation in the wiki.
[btw - why is my main user account unable to login by ssh even after enabling ssh on that user? I had to create a new user to accomplish it...]
Then, I located the php.ini file [at /php/etc/php4/php.ini] and changed line 373 to:
post_max_size = 50M
and line 489 to:
upload_max_filesize = 50M
I was hoping that would solve my problem, but it hasnt. I still have a 7mb filesize limit on php uploads.
From the brief description of my problem, have I done anything totally wrong? [can provide more detail if necessary]
I really don't know the first thing about php, or ssh, or if I have to have anything in a .htaccess file so please provide detailed answers/suggestions with that in mind. This is the first time I've compiled a script so I'm very new to everything.
Thanks in advance,
