    when uploading attachment of pdf file of 11mb, its stucked to 100%

    -flash uploader was used

    Maybe a PHP memory or timeout problem?

    Confirmed 20mb pdf stuck on 100%

    I have 128mb post and upload with 0 timeout in PHP also

    I can reproduce this by setting post & upload to 128M as you have, my memory limit is also set at 128M.
    Increasing this to 512M & restarting apache sees the pdf upload fine :)

    Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (128MB)
    memory_limit 512M
    According to php.net memory_limit should be larger than post_max_size. 256M should even do it.

    There are several PHP settings that need to be increased to support large uploads. You will need to add the following lines to your .htaccess:

    php_value upload_max_filesize 20M
    php_value post_max_size 20M

    the setting above got error in .htaccess

    so i will use php.ini instead (php suexec environment)

    where should i put the php.ini file with the ff contents?
    upload_max_filesize= 20M
    post_max_size =20M

    only in root folder where index.php is located?

    The php.ini file should be in your web root.

    i realized you should double + extra your memory limit to the max file size.
    ex for 20mb file, set it to 50mb

    If I set the memory in config.php, then do your ad to the .htaccess, would I then have to restart apache?

    I tried without restarting and it didn't fix the problem. I changed my upload size in the admincp before I knew it would fork up my flash uploader :(

    Don't know my way around ssh to edit my php.ini.
