When i am logged in as administrator i can add different file types but when i try to add a 70mb zip file it fails with error 'Error connecting to the server'. Prior to the upgrade to 3.10 this was fine. I have changed the upload limit in php.ini from 40M to 500M but no joy. Any suggestions?
I am not the expert in this, but I believe that the maximum file upload is controlled within php.ini, then your Moodle site, then by your course, and finally an activity. A good place to begin probing is on "File upload size" in the Moodle docs.
Here are my current settings:
post_max_size = 500M
upload_max_filesize = 500M
I have restarted IIS. I'm running out of ideas. Still get the error Error connecting to server. Of note i can upload any other type of file if it's a few MB no problem.
IIS? That's an important detail when asking for help as most Moodle servers are Apache or Nginx.
Is this a new server? Or a new website in IIS? IIS has a default transfer limit of 30000000 bytes, i.e. just under 30 MB, set in system.webServer/security/requestFiltering/requestLimits/maxAllowedContentLength.
This can be set at server level as well as for individual websites.
