increasing max upload size on server 2008 R2
Group Documentation writersGroup Moodle Course Creator Certificate holdersGroup Moodle HQGroup Particularly helpful MoodlersGroup TestersGroup Translators

Our  network manager has installed Moodle in our school  on server 2008 R2 IIS - but the vanilla install has a max upload size of 2MB.

He says he has followed the instructions here  http://docs.moodle.org/24/en/File_upload_size

trying both with instructions for  the server 2008 and the XP/Server 2003 but no joy.

Does anyone have any suggestions please?

thanks

Mary,

You will need to make changes in the php.ini and the web.config.  IIS 7.x has a limit of 30mb.  Change the values below to match your needs.

php.ini

  • upload_max_filesize = 500M
  • post_max_size = 500M

web.config

<system.webServer>
        <security>
            <requestFiltering>
                <requestLimits  maxAllowedContentLength="524288000"/>
            </requestFiltering>
        </security>
</system.webServer>

I would also suggest installing the windows PHP Manager via the Windows Web Installer.

Hi there. Thanks very much for this - I will pass it on but - can you just confirm something - "IIS 7  has a limit  of 30MB" You mean we can't upload (through Moodle interface) anything larger than 30MB???

The limit is imposed by default, the web.config changes the limit.

Glad I could be of assistance.
