Joomla /files to large to upload too media manager

Nov 4, 2013 by jomnew
Hi
Whenever I try to upload a file using media manager I keep getting the error message" file is too large to upload In Media Manager”. I tried loading small files that are less than 22KB but I am still getting the same message. I also checked the mm file size and it is 100 mb. I made sure that all system /directory permissions are writable and all folders have the 755 permissions.
I ran out of things to check, and I would appreciate any suggestions.
Many thanks

Try these php settings in your pho files
 post_max_size = 8M
upload_max_filesize = 2M

you can ask your Host if your current local php.ini file is able to override the master for the  upload settings. Some servers use php5.ini so check the name for your local php.ini file

local php ini file isn’t recursive and works for only the folder it is in. However the .htaccess file is recursive. So you can declare your setting in the .htaccess. check this
