The uploaded file is too large for the server to process.


Well-known member

When I try to upload a file only (50kb) i'll get this error.
The following error occurred
The uploaded file is too large for the server to process.
Php.ini settings
; File Uploads ;

; Whether to allow HTTP file uploads.
; http://php.net/file-uploads
file_uploads = On

; Temporary directory for HTTP uploaded files (will use system default if not
; specified).
; http://php.net/upload-tmp-dir
upload_tmp_dir = /tmp

; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
; http://php.net/upload-max-filesize
upload_max_filesize = 64M

; Maximum number of files that can be uploaded via a single request
max_file_uploads = 20
Nginx settings
client_max_body_size 1024m;
client_body_buffer_size 128k;

server_names_hash_bucket_size 128;
server_names_hash_max_size 10240;
data directories are chmod 777

I have no Idea anymore what this can be.
Anyone else?

What is the maximum limit for post data?
And there is a chance your server's temp folder is not writable...

Yeah, it happened to me once even with 777 permission... once I've updated my dir the error went away...

post_max_size = 64M
How can I test if /tmp is writable (from the right user)

I did
[root@server01 tmp]# nginx -t 2> text.txt
[root@server01 tmp]# ls
backup.121714           systemd-private-DObjJ1  systemd-private-lppLYH  systemd-private-sgY0yg  text.txt
systemd-private-A6TgGU  systemd-private-JbciQ3  systemd-private-M1DQC9  systemd-private-WXBsgn
[root@server01 tmp]#
They just told me it's a know CentOS 7 problem. But I can't find anything about it.
