Hi everybody.

I am running SilverStripe 2.3.2 on Ubuntu 9.04. When I try to upload a file in the "Files and Images" section bigger than 10 Mb, I see this error:

Fatal error: Method name must be a string in /home/artemb/projects/avt/htdocs/sapphire/forms/Form.php on line 245

Small files (5 Mb) are uploaded just fine.

phpinfo() shows the following:
file_uploads On
upload_max_filesize 100M

What could be the reason of this error? And how do I upload a big file with SilverStripe?

I think in your php.ini file you need to check the file upload sizes in 2 places.upload_max_filesize and is it post_max_size ?

Yes, that fixed the issue, thank you very much. But wouldn't it be awesome if SilverStripe would handle such situations with an appropriate error message?
