Hello, my name is Charles,
I ran across this web hosting on phpBB's website,
I am a regular user of phpBB and wish to move my site from a free web hoster to a paid one.
The question I have is knowing the Upload Max Filesize.
Can anyone tell me what the Max size is for this webhoster?

I believe that the default per the php ini file is 2 meg. You can override that by placing a php.ini file in the directory where the upload script is run. Change the upload_max_filesize.

Thanks for the quick reply,

I didn't know you could override the settings for this.
I'll try that out, after I start up a site from here.
I'll have to have that up'ed to around 10 megs

Thanks again for your help.

The default maximum file upload size in PHP anywhere is 2Mb because for files above that size it becomes extremely inefficient to upload files via the HTTP interface that the 2Mb limit applies to. For files bigger than 1Mb FTP is far more efficient.
