Size for digital products

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have zip files that are larger than 300MB, when I try to upload I get the error code that says the file is too big, what can i do about this?

In admin, Dashboard, Store Overview tab, Technical Details section, a line item states the Max Upload Filesize. (Mine says 16M.)

This value comes from PHP's configuration file PHP.INI. It's value can be changed on a local basis. See:
https://www.php.net/manual/en/ini.core.php#ini.upload-max-filesize

Then, there is also PHP's Post Max Size which is all of the POST payload (as if sending more than one file). See:
https://www.php.net/manual/en/ini.core.php#ini.post-max-size

Then, there is PHP's Memory Limit. See:
https://www.php.net/manual/en/ini.core.php#ini.memory-limit

But there is still the matter of checking, and perhaps changing, a limit on how large of a POST payload the actual web server will allow to pass through.

So, the filesize limit must be large enough, the POST payload limit must be even larger, and the amount of memory PHP is allowed to use must be larger than that. (And the web server).

Thank you, I will look into this. I tried  a work around that seemed to work for now. I uploaded directly into the folder server side then refreshed the list by using "Update file list" and it shows there. i will look into being able to make the PHP changes, but this will  work for now

Thank you for your quick response
