How do I increase the maximum upload sizes in the fileserver appliance? When I log in using Extplorer it says 8mb is the size limit.

Need to edit php.ini

See this here.

Acording to this post php.ini is located at /etc/php5/cgi/ although I can't confirm that. Be great if you could confirm this.

It worked...

Thank you Jeremy...

I did as you said and made the changes to the ini file.

Made max upload at 5000m and made max file size at 1000m


Works great now

Change it to something so you can at least do backend/admin uploads.
