Yes, I lodged a ticket and Invision advised me of the following: 'Contact your web host and ask them to increase the PHP "memory_limit" setting to "128M" which is the minimum that IP.Board requires. A too low memory limit is often a source of problems when it comes to uploading and re-sizing images so we will be able to rule that out once they've increased it.'
I did this and they increased the PHP memory limit to 128M, and it appears to have fixed my issue. Anything above 8mb is still a problem but at least we can upload reasonable file sizes now.
Thanks for the reply, I've tried uploading 5mb images to test this and the uploaded fails, no problem with smaller images though. I get a message saying a script running is unresponsive, cancel or continue to wait.
Hi all, a major gripe I am constantly getting from members is that our image uploader isn't good enough and on other boards it is much easier. Basically they are trying to upload images of 5mb or more and are too lazy to resize them before uploading and the image doesn't upload (despite the max file size being 10mb)
I thought that the built in image resizer would address this on 3.4.5 which we are currently on, but it doesn't seem to do what I thought. I assumed if a large file was being uploaded it would reduce the image and file size to whatever I'd set it to in the ACP, should that be happening?
In the acp under security, it reccomends making the conf_global.php non writable. We have never done this probably being scared of breaking something we don't understand. are there any issues we should be aware of if we do this?
I noticed today some strange failed login attempts in the ACP. This prompted me to change the admin folder name? The failed logins have been going on since this morning, 4 at a time, with around an hour in between. The usernames used are below, same names and IP every hour(ish) After changing the admin folder name should I still be worried?
