Description MWJames 2010-12-18 03:14:13 UTC
On a MediaWiki 1.17alpha (r78549), PHP	5.2.13 (apache2handler), MySQL	5.1.44-community a file with 62 MB could not be uploaded while the parameters in LocalSettings have been set to $wgMaxUploadSize = '150M'; and php.ini post_max_size = 150M, upload_max_filesize = 150M. The Special:Upload message is ''This file is bigger than the server is configured to allow.''

The same file have been uploaded on a MediaWiki 1.16.0, PHP 5.2.13 (apache2handler), MySQL	5.1.44-community with the same LocalSettings and php.ini settings.

Comment 1 Bryan Tong Minh 2011-01-22 20:38:05 UTC
This presumably was introduced when I rewrote the size checking routines.
Comment 2 MWJames 2011-01-23 03:11:37 UTC
Just checked against 1.17alpha (r80795) with the above described setup and the error still occurs.
Comment 3 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2011-01-25 21:34:20 UTC
r80992 adds a dumb test for $wgMaxUploadSize . Could probably be a base of a future test for this bug.
Comment 4 Bryan Tong Minh 2011-01-27 20:23:33 UTC
As per the manual [1] $wgMaxUploadSize is the number of bytes, shorthands like '150M' are not recognized. You need to set it to 150 * 1024 * 1024. The reason it worked in 1.16 was that $wgMaxUploadSize only applied to copy uploads.
