This might be a PHP / web server configuration issue. Do you know what the maximum post size and file upload limits are? You can check with a script that has phpinfo() in it and search for "post_max_size" and "upload_max_filesize".

If those are set sufficiently high enough, it might be nginx or Apache web server instead, depending on your setup.
In those cases, the web server might need some configuration changes to allow bigger post limits.

I think this happened to me when the permissions were not correct on the folder i.e no write permissions.
