Having problems with uploading large files
« on: 03.01.2022 15:39:48 »
Hello All,

Can I have support with our Joomla 3.9 & JDownloads 3.9.8.2 We have problems to upload large files.
We need upload some over 2GB files occasionally.

Server settings are:
Allowed file uploads:    Yes
Maximum allowed file size (max_filesize):    3000M
Maximum allowed POST size: (post_max_size):    3000M
Memory limit (memory_limit):    1G
Maximum input time for uploads (max_input_time) in seconds:    300
Maximum execution time of scripts (max_execution_time) in seconds:    300

When I try upload about 250Mb file, I get following error message after about one minute:
Quote
Invalid file size found. File upload aborted.
Anyone knows what can cause this error?

On upload screen, there is also this text:
Allowed maximum size (site): 204800 KB
I can't find this setting anywhere. Where to look for it?

Is there Log files with more accurate information somewhere? I can't find it.
Server is running on Apache 2.4 with PHP 7.4.

Hi
If you go to jD Options - Uploads tab you will see the option 'Maximum File Size' - it also shows the php maxfile size.  This applies to the max size when uploading fomthe backend.  See
https://www.jdownloads.net/documentation-for-v3-9/options-configuration-v3-9/uploads-options

For the Front End you can specify the max size in the relevant User Group Settings - Group Creation/Editting tab- option Maximum File Size in KB (kilobytes).  Note that which user group applies depends on the Ranking level of the user group.

Generally I define a User Group called something like uploaderUG and set its ranking to say 131.  Then allocate users you wish to allow to upload to that User Group.  Also useful to create a view Access level called say uploader-view to attach to a menu item such as Create Download.

There is a whole section on User Group settings see

but you might start at  with the overview

Thank You for quick and good answer :D
Problem was in group settings like you think. We have pretty simple service, only superadmins can upload, so no more groups needed.
