Uploading a file to forums - error

    I just changed the specifications on uploading files. I set it the file limit to 100MB (highest file i have is 60 MB). When i try to upload the file, it gets to 100% then gives me an error that says "There was a problem uploading your file." I also added the extension .exe, so I shouldn't have a problem. I don't understand whats wrong? I even tried it with a 10MB file, still experiencing the same error. However, the 3MB file worked.

    That will give you the location of the file. For example:

    My php.ini path says this:

    Configuration File (php.ini) Path= " /etc "

    However, when i go to the 'etc' folder, there is no php.ini file in there, even if i show hidden files?

    I have a file named 'ftpquota' and a 'worldofdiscussions' folder, and thats all.

    You don't see a "Loaded Configuration File" on the phpinfo page?

    Maybe you are looking in the wrong location. Are you logged in as root?

    i'm sorry, what do you mean by logged in as root?

    You can only access /etc as root. If you are on a dedicated or VPS server then you should have root access. For other types of servers like shared servers you don't get that level of access and cannot edit the PHP configuration.

    oh, my plan is considered a "shared plan" but i did purchase a Dedicated IP, if that matter at all?

    You can't access the php.ini file on a shared server.

    You can try changing your PHP settings by editing the library/config.php file in XF. You can use code like this:

    ini_set('name_of_setting', 'value');
    This works sometimes. But some hosts don't allow this.
