FAQ FOR SITE ADMINSTRATORS

INSTALLATION, CREATION and GENERAL ADMIN QUESTIONS




1. Q: How do I increase file size for upload and posting? (These instructions work when you have a site hosted on a site like Bluehost)


1. Open the php.ini file provided by bluehost and change the post_max_size and the __upload___max_filesize to the value you want. So, to increase the maximum to 50 meg, they would need to be like this: upload_max_filesize = 50M post_max_size = 50M Don't change anything else and save the changes.
2. Leave this in your public_html root and also copy it to the following locations...this is assuming Moodle is installed in a directory called moodle: -- moodle/admin -- moodle/course -- moodle/files
3. Also, copy this to the root of your moodledata directory. Now, log into Moodle and go to Site Administration/Security/Site policies and change the "Maximum uploaded file size" to either "__Server__ Limit" or your new max limit and save.
Just write this down somewhere so when/if you upgrade you can add php.ini back to the appropriate directories.
Thanks to Steve for these great instructions! They worked for us! :)
