This morning i had come across an issue while setting value for upload_max_filesize and post_max_size.
Tried .htaccess method as below,
php_value upload_max_filesize 256M php_value post_max_size 280M
Also used below method too from php script
ini_set('memory_limit', '880M'); // worked ini_set('post_max_size', '280M'); // didn't work ini_set('upload_max_filesize', '256M'); // didn't work
Unfortunately both method didn’t work. I could set values in php.ini and made it work. But, I dont wanted to touch php.ini.
What worked is setting the directives and values in .user.ini file as below.
post_max_size = 280M upload_max_filesize = 256M
Below 2 links explains the reason:
