Hey guys - let me just say off the bat that I am not simply trying to edit the phprc to upload large files. I have already done that. Please see my current phprc setup right now (all folders, php 5.3, 5.4, and 5.5)
upload_max_filesize = 300M
post_max_size = 300M
max_execution_time = 1000
max_input_time = 1000
extension = fileinfo.so
The current PHP settings for the domain I am trying to upload files to are set to PHP 5.4 Fast CGI. WP 4.0.
I am using a plugin called Use Your Drive in Wordpress to allow users to upload large video files. Through that plugin, but ALSO through the regular WP Media upload, a file around 120mb will upload, and but then when it gets almost complete, it won’t finish. It just spins, and then refreshes, and the file is not there. It has nothing to do with the plugin I am using because it happens in the regular media upload as well. Dreamhost, of course, has refused to tell me what the issue is because they don’t support this (as stated in the Wiki). The chat rep told me that there is “another PHP variable” that needs to be updated or changed in order to fix it. Also, some issues are also happening with upload to FTP. Sometimes I will upload files and they won’t upload correctly via FTP.
Can someone please help me understand what I need to change in the PHP settings in order to allow for these large files (some will be upwards of 300mb) to upload successfully?
