[Solved] Resize photos to meet the 128mb limit
So I was getting complaints about members not being able to use attachments due to the 128mb limit. Most folks today have a photo on their smartphone that is very large in file size and they dont know how to resize easily.
I went into settings and tried to up that limit. I read the message that the limit was coming from my hosting company (SiteGround.com).
I contacts SiteGround and they said that the limit was a PHP limit, and if I wanted to change it I would have to upgrade to a cloud account that is only $80 a month!
Any suggestions? Is there a better hosting solution? Is there a site where members can easily resize photos? Is there an app? Any ideas?
What kind of picture is more than 5-15 mb ? Even from a DSLR camera there is nothing near 128 mb.
OK, so the 128MB is a good setting.
I have it set to 128MB in settings>posts and topics, but I’m still getting an error when trying to upload an iPad screenshot or photo (128bytes)
Well the error shows 128 BYTES not MBytes.
Can you remove the 128 mb you have put in there and put something like 20. Maybe 128 is confusing the script. ..... and no one will be able to upload anything 128 mb ... anyways ...
Also do not put anything like 2.9 or 10.5, use a 2 digit number.
