Have you had the page open for a long time before attempting to submit the update?

Try opening the page in a new tab and trying again.

Hmm, your post_max_size is 8M and your upload_max_filesize is 64M so it should be fine.

You could try increasing the post_max_size just in case.
You can do that by editing the php.ini file, or by adding this to the .htaccess file:
Code:
php_value post_max_size 16M

Where in the .htaccess would this go? Here's what I have:

# Mod_security can interfere with uploading of content such as attachments. If you
# cannot attach files, remove the "#" from the lines below.
#<IfModule mod_security.c>
# SecFilterEngine Off
# SecFilterScanPOST Off
#</IfModule>
ErrorDocument 401 default
ErrorDocument 403 default
ErrorDocument 404 default
ErrorDocument 500 default
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
# If you are having problems with the rewrite rules, remove the "#" from the
# line that begins "RewriteBase" below. You will also have to change the path
# of the rewrite to reflect the path to your XenForo installation.
#RewriteBase /xenforo
# This line may be needed to enable WebDAV editing with PHP as a CGI.
#RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]
RewriteRule ^(data/|js/|styles/|install/|favicon\.ico|crossdomain\.xml|robots\.txt) - [NC,L]
RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]
</IfModule>

There's no reason why it should have but you can simply remove it.

You can try editing the php.ini file instead.

To avoid this kind of thing from happening in the future, is there a good reason to limit the php post max size to 16 MB? How about 32 or 64?

Have you changed the post_max_size in php.ini yet?

After you make the changes, restart Apache. Verify in phpinfo that the value has taken effect (admin.php?tools/phpinfo)
