Before I even begin, I have to say that I know nothing about server configuration or PHP, yet that is exactly what I am attempting to update. *smile*

http://www.mugsalot.com/test/clients.htm, user: test, pass: test

The issue is very simple; the default PHP install (?) is a 2 megabyte file upload limit. I need a 15 mg limit instead. You can upload anything up to 2 megs, anything over that is an automatic fail.

We are running PHP version 4 [mod_php4-4.2.1] on an Apache server.

We first tried to alter the PHP max upload size in the httpd.conf file, but that was NOT the answer, and crashed the entire server. *grin* The code that crashed within that file:

# PHP Settings
php_value upload_max_filesize 16M
php_value memory_limit 32M
php_value post_max_size 17M

So my question, is this something we CAN configure at runtime, or a new PHP install with altered defaults is our solution?

I researched online and found references to the php.ini file, but it seems as though this is an install file, not a file residing on the server.

Any pointers would be very appreciated.
