"Max download filesize: 50000000000 (bytes)"

And as soon as I hit the 'save' button, it changed it to 2147483647 bytes

So far, so good. I'm up to 4 uploads (maximum so far 10,953Kb), but I've got some over 500Kb.

That should be more than enough that means your limit is set to 2048 mb for file uploads

Is there any way to increase it? I tried 50000000000, but that's when it changed to 2147483647. Sounds like I'm limited to 2Gb......

Well, I've gotta figure out how to shrink some files.

Thank you so much for your help. I hope I didn't sound too snotty

You would have to change the code case I cast max filesize as (int) or you can manually change it inside the smf_settings table that should override it but if you update anything on that settings page you would need to redo it.

I do find it amazing that you can get files uploaded of more than 2gigs though  a web form though.

I have a bunch of computer magazine archives in PDF format, and they are pretty big. Some are in excess of 440Mb. I should be o.k. with a 2Gb limit. (No programming for me-I'd screw up EVERYTHING)

To shrink files use a "split archive". Winrar and 7-zip support split archives, 7-Zip is free open source software.

No, they are PDF files. I have to go into Adobe and re-save them with a smaller footprint.

I've done it before, but its been a LONG time

Now that it seems to be working as intended, and me being a fat lazy southern boy, I wish there were some way to automatically import all 785 uploads I need to get into the database. :)

If your referring to the the Long time creating the archive, you can reduce this time very much, buy using a "store" setting, it will not compress, it will just split.

Their is also an app called, HjSplit, it splits files without compression, = fast splitting :)

 :) No, I'm referring to the long time it's been since I did it. The process will take a 400Mb PDF file and "shrink" it down to 60 or so megs. That's what I need to do to some of the larger PDF files I have on my BBS so they don't take up so much room.

OK lol..

Well splitting a file does not require editing the file, it basically splits it like this
Lets say you have a 5 GB file, and you have a problem uploading files larger than 1 GB, this is what you would do.
Using HjSplit or a archiving program (and setting the archiving program to not do any compressing, usually called store mode), set the files to 1 GB each.
The process should take less than a minute and will create these files. (1GB each)

something.pdf.001
something.pdf.002
something.pdf.003
something.pdf.004
something.pdf.005

After they are downloaded, the downloader can Join the files similar to the way you split it.

Will you ever add the ability to upload more than one .rar?  I've asked a couple of times and I'm not paying for the pro one till it suits us better.  I don't even want this one unless it can have more than one .rar.  I paid hoping it would be worth it and asked for more .rars and it never happened.  I'll watch here and if you ever add the ability to have more rars on the pro one or even this one, then I'll rethink.  Keep in mind that we would have been long term payers.  Why am I putting this here?  Because I'm shut out of the pro support due to not anting to pay again until it's better for us, just one little thing, that's all we want.

I plan on adding multifiles in one download just is very very complicated.  Since there multiple ways to download files and the credit system has to take in account each part etc.

we didn't need a credit system, just the ability for us to upload six .rars at mot and for people to download them.  I told you that nearly a year ago.

This is the only thing that has stopped us from using downloads pro, we need those extra .rars.  Currently we have to upload six files or so in one .rar and the downloader has to download them all to get one, other wise we'd have ten thousand downloads for them to go through. 

You could have just told me where to change it myself and I'd have added the code in

It really is a shame as we liked the system apart from that one thing and we are now on the search for a system more suited to us.  If you do decide to help us out, let me know and we'll buy it again

~tico~

When I try to go to the /downloads page I get a 500 error. Any ideas what could be causing it?
