Hi Everyone:

So i seem to be having a similar problem as other with file upload limits. I cant get the userforms to pass any file uploads larger than around 2mb.

I tried updating the php.ini to allow larger files, but it hasnt seemed to work. Below is what I have in there:

register_globals = off
allow_url_fopen = off

expose_php = Off
max_input_time = 60
variables_order = "EGPCS"
extension_dir = ./
upload_tmp_dir = /tmp
precision = 12
url_rewriter.tags = "a=href,area=href,frame=src,input=src,form=,fieldset="
memory_limit = 50M
post_max_size = 10M
file_uploads = On
upload_max_filesize = 10M


i am hosted through godaddy and am seeing if the issue is with them, but am wondering if there is anything I may be missing on the SS side.

Thanks for any insights!

So, my main concer for this was to be able to have the file that was uploaded passed to the person set to receive the form information via email. The form data would come through, but not the uploaded file. I foinf out that the USERDEFINEDFORM.php file has a limit to 1 meg. after the file breaks this rule the file is only added to FILES and IMAGES and not passed through email. For those wondering how to change this rule, make this change in userdefinedform.php (line 540)

// Attach the file if its less than 1MB, provide a link if its over.
						if($file->getAbsoluteSize() < 1024*1024*1){
							$attachments[] = $file;

if you bump up the 1024 size, the image will pass. That is as long as the file doesnt hit your email clients restrictions.

I feel very sherlocky about finding this one!
