Thanks for responding to my message.
I am writing all the steps taken by me to install Moodle 1.8 and then steps taken to increase the "upload file size". These are as follows:
I had downloaded complete moodle software 1.8 (containing Apache2, PHP and MySQL) and had installed on my personal computer at home at port 8080. So I use http://localhost:8080/. Operating system used by me is Windows XP.
After installation, I created users-- admin, teacher and students all with my own name.I have also created courses and wanted to add lessons and assignments. For this I have created files on my hard disk of sizes more than 1000 bytes.
To login I do the following:
I click on xammp_restart and then log in as admin. I click on one of the course created by me. I "turn editing on". I click on "settings" under "administration".A screen "Edit Course Setting" appears. On the screen "course name appears" and also "Maximum Upload size" appears as 1000 bytes which can not be changed.
When I want to add a new activity "a new lesson", I can not upload a file of size more than 1000 bytes. Similarly I can not upload a file for assignment with more than 1000bytes.I get the error "Uploaded file exceeded the maximum size limit set by the form".
As suggested by many Moodle members, I made the following changes to my php.ini file, which appears in two folders
in C:\moodle\apache\bin, and C:\moodle\php
; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files
upload_max_filesize = 100M
post_max_size = 100M
max_execution_time = 3000 ; Maximum execution time of each script, in seconds
max_input_time = 6000 ; Maximum amount of time each script may spend parsing request data
memory_limit = 40M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (40MB)
I restart the system by clicking xampp_restart but the above settings do not affect the upload file size of 1000bytes.
The procedure was repeated several times but upload size remains 1000 bytes only. In fact, I downloaded and reinstalled the software twice but without having any success in increasing upload file size.
Any help will be highly appreciated.
