I'm sorry for responding to such an old thread, but this is something that's been been driving me crazy all day. I cannot find a default setting anywhere in the site administration, nor can I find the default setting anywhere in the code. Right now the "maximum number of uploaded files" default value in a course is 1. We need to change that to 10.
Can this actually be done? We're using Moodle 2.3.2.
I must not have been clear when I posted my original question.
The "File submission" plugin has been enabled on our site, so students can upload attachments. When I create a new assignment, the default value for "Maximum number of uploaded files" is 1. I need to change that default value to 10.
I can provide screenshots if I am still not making myself clear.
