Description Mourad Mokrane 2006-11-26 22:12:46 UTC
The maximum file size should be indicated in the upload form (or even on the 
page before the form itself) among with other upload rules. By this we avoid 
faulty submisions (file too big, file contain linked bitmaps etc...)

The maximum file size should be increased, because 300 Kb is too small. Any 
somehow complicated clipart is generally bigger than 300Kb. Increasing the max 
filesize to 500Kb-700Kb (maybe up to 1Mb) is not a bad idea IMO.

This is possibly a deeper issue. Here are the current php settings:


And, what we set in the .htaccess:

php_value max_input_time -1
php_value max_execution_time -1
php_value memory_limit 20M
php_value upload_max_filesize 20M
php_value arg_separator.output &
php_flag session.use_trans_sid off
php_flag magic_quotes_gpc off

Can you comment more on this? The -1 means forever too... And, as you can see, we are setting the memory limits to 20 megabytes...sooo
Comment 2 Jon Phillips 2007-02-05 22:02:47 UTC
BTW, I added a new value to the post_max_size (which was at 8 megabytes).

post_max_size 20M

Can you test this and post here your results...

Closing all openclipart bugs as openclipart is now on launchpad, as per request from  Jon Philips.
