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 :)

php.ini
PHP:
; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (128MB)
; http://php.net/memory-limit
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?

thanks.

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

Mike,

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.
