You need to edit both php.ini and my.cnf.
Then restart PHP and MySQL (or reboot).

If your dump file is really big, use this:


Thanks i'm upload 100MB, wich

Thanks i'm upload 100MB, wich konfig are php.ini and my.cnf?

Can you Post the change from 8MB to 100MB?

Edit with vi or nano. Don't forget to sudo. But remember, these settings are not recommended for daily use (potential security risk)...

In php.ini:

; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
; http:// php.net/upload-max-filesize
upload_max_filesize =

Also in php.ini:

; Maximum size of POST data that PHP will accept.
; http:// php.net/post-max-size
post_max_size = 8M
In my.cnf:
The bold numbers are default.

Good work Anne!

But FYI sudo is not required in TKL appliances as default user account is root (although all processes run under limited accounts).

Thanks for you special

Thanks for you special support!

We'll look into changing the defaults

Perhaps 8MB is too small a size for the default upload limit. I'm thinking maybe we should ramp it up to 32MB. The flip side is that I think larger upload limits make DoS (Denial of Service) attacks easier. OTOH, DoS is impossible to stop entirely anyhow.
