[quote]i didnt think it was working cuz i used ini_get(max_execution_time) and it was still showing 30, but it did upload correctly
thanks for the hlep[/quote]
So you know, PHP has three sets of values. Default(no php.ini–migrates as Global), Global (in php.ini) and Local. This is why I suggested to use <? phpinfo() ?> to see if it changed as this will print out the Global and Local option values. ini_get() is most likely getting the INI value, which would be 30.
