I have a problem where OwnerID isn't being set on the File object. It seems that Member::currentUserID() is returning 0 in line 623 of FileDataObjectManager.php. This is strange, because of echo Member::currentUserID() from the CategoryController, it returns 1.
Have you experienced this problem with the latest versions?
What do you mean it's not pulling from php.ini? What value is being returned? Keep in mind that with most PHP configurations, it is not possible to modify upload_max_filesize with ini_set() or with htaccess directives.
Well, in the past, using things like Slide Show Pro (on different host), I often had to upload a php.ini file to override the upload_max_filesize & post_max_size settings. It looks like the 20M value it's returning is the hosts default limit. So I guess my php.ini isn't really overriding.
