I'm pretty certain everything that should be set to be big has been set including:
upload_max_filesize = 50M
post_max_size = 55M
memory_limit = 256M
max_input_time = -1
requestLimits > maxallowedContentLength = 1000000
maxrequestlength = 100000000
executiontimeout = 01:00:00
Moodle has picked up the maximum limit set in the php.ini file, however requests of over 20Mb return a 404 error (page not found).
It seems to be a timeout issue, because I have managed to upload a 25Mb file (although not a 38Mb file) whilst another user cannot upload anything larger than 18Mb.
Any help very, very gratefully received!!!
I've set all the PHP and FastCGI settings exactly as specified and as shown in various other posts. I can upload files up to 30 mb, any bigger than that, 404 error.
So the problem is not those variables.
But what is it?
I presume discussions of web.config and .htaccess should not be relevant under Windows?
Sadly this is a functional limitation in that an Art course could easily have student files larger than 30 mb.
Hi Colin. This post you suggested http://www.cyprich.com/2008/06/19/fixing-file-upload-size-limit-in-iis-7/ was the key. Who would believe the default file size limit in IIS 7 is 30 mb? Or that to get round it you do actually change (add) a setting
<requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="250000000" />
in the <system.webServer> section of the file web.config of the appropriate web site? wow.
Anyway, much much appreciated. I can now use Moodle version 1.95 exactly as is for another three years
