I believe the default location for the php.ini file on a *nix box is here:


If you don't have one, you should be able to find it in the source 
directory where it was originally compiled.

At minimum, you can create a file called test.php and inside it put <? 
phpinfo() ?>. This will give you a ton of information, and you should see 
"Configuration File (php.ini) Path" which will tell you where the ini file 
is located.

Once you edit the php.ini file to your liking, restart apache.

Lastly make sure you have enough free space in tmp to hold the largest file 
you want to upload.
