large files
by Jon Coppin, posted on 11:26 AM, December 10, 2008
I have narrowed a problem with publishing to the size limit on uploaded files, I found this article on your website http://support.exsitewebware.com/cgi/page.cgi/articles.html/Content_Management/Managing_Large_Files but it isn’t clear from the article which config file to add the bigfile_maxsize parameter to. Adding that parameter to exsite.conf did not seem to help.

Thanks

    Hi Jon,

    exsite.conf is the correct file to add these parameters to.

    When raising bigfile_maxsize you should be sure that MySQL will accept queries of that size (MySQL conf parameter max_allowed_packet) or the queries could fail in MySQL even though they were accepted by ExSite.

    As an alternative, you can use the Upload plug-in to bypass the database entirely for large files.

    Let me know if that helps,
    ... Morgan

      Thanks Morgan,
      I got that part working by setting mysql to allow large files.
