Xibo upload limit doesn't change after editing php.ini

Asked by Nazareno Chiaravalloti on 2014-06-26

Hello, I'm using the latest version of Xibo, installed on an Ubuntu server, and I have a big problem.
I edited both the php.ini files, setting -upload_max_filesize and -post_max_size at 900M, but nothing changed: the upload limit on xibo is always 16MB (which is rather unusual I think?)
So, what should I do? Any suggestions? I'm not used to this sort of things so please don't be complicated xD

You need to restart Apache after editing php.ini

Note you need to change more than just those two parameters. There's a full
list in the FAQ

Yeah I know, I changed all the parameters listed in the FAQ and I also restarted Apache by command line (-sudo service apache2 restart), but the 16MB upload limit still remains, I don't know what to do

Can't have edited the correct file then. It's /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini on
recent versions of Ubuntu

on /etc/php5/apache2, the parameters on the php.ini file are as reported here:

file_uploads = On

upload_max_filesize = 900M

max_input_time = 60

memory_limit = 900M

max_execution_time = 30

post_max_size = 900M

am I doing something wrong?

can it be my browser? I'm using firefox and trying to upload a 30MB video, but still nothing. 16MB limit

What size is shown on the upload form

"This form accepts: wmv, avi, mpg, mpeg, webm, mp4 files up to a maximum size of 16M "

I don't think you can have edited the file correctly or restarted the
webserver correctly. That's all that is required

administrator@web-server:~$ sudo service apache2 restart
[sudo] password for administrator:
no talloc stackframe at ../source3/param/loadparm.c:4864, leaking memory
 * Restarting web server apache2
AH00112: Warning: DocumentRoot [/var/www/html] does not exist
AH00558: apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using Set the 'ServerName' directive globally to suppress this message

maybe because of these errors? I don't know what they exactly mean

I've never seen those errors before

Thanks Alex Harrington, that solved my question.
