Topic: file too large to upload error
I am using PunBB 1.3.4 on a Ubuntu 8.04 server. It is my own server so there is no problem with file size or access. However when uploading attachments I get this error:
Warning! The following errors must be corrected before your message can be posted: * The selected file was too large to upload. The server didn't allow the upload.
For testing, I have set the upload limit for all groups to 200MB. Yes I double checked the number of zeros. A PDF of 1716545 bytes can be uploaded but a TXT file of 2791724 bytes cannot. Larger files, of course, are impossible. I have tried many files and sizes but just mention the above ones to show approximately where the size limit is. I have tried the Firefox, Galeon, and Opera browsers.
I do notice that the error message is listed under "Avatar stuff" in profile.php. I do not allow avatars so perhaps that is connected.
After checking this thoroughly, I think it is a bug. Please forgive me if it is not.
