Thread: problem with parsing mechanism

    problem with parsing mechanism

    i have a parsing mechanism for mp3 uploads which works fine. but only for files that are under 2 mb. any file above 2mb and it returns this error message. i dont understand why when the file size is set to 5mb. if anyone has any ideas it would be a great help.

    if ($_POST['parse_var'] == "shopmp3"){
    if (!$_FILES['fileField']['tmp_name']) {
    $error_msg = '<font color="#FF0000">ERROR: Please browse for an mp3 before you press submit.</font>';
    } else {
    $maxfilesize = 5000200; // 51200 bytes equals 50kb
    if($_FILES['fileField']['size'] > $maxfilesize ) {
    $error_msg = '<font color="#FF0000">ERROR: Your mp3 was too large, please try again.</font>';
    } else if (!preg_match("/\.(mp3)$/i", $_FILES['fileField']['name'] ) ) {
    $error_msg = '<font color="#FF0000">ERROR: Your mp3 was not one of the accepted formats, please try again.</font>';
    } else {
    $place_file = move_uploaded_file( $_FILES['fileField']['tmp_name'], "members/$id/".$newname);
    $success_msg = '<font color="#009900">Your mp3 has been updated, it may take a few minutes for the changes to show... please be patient.</font>';

    This error message reases whenever the $_FILES['fileField']['tmp_name'] is not set... meaning that it has never been uploaded in the first place. I dont think this is an error in your code, but more likely a setting of the server.

    Im pretty sure you know how to create the standard phpinfo(); page, check for the value of 'upload_max_filesize' default is set to 2M i believe... wich you have to change somehow with either adjusting the php.ini or using an htaccess

    Kirupa search "upload, max, filesize"

    You can never underestimate the stupidity of the general public.
