I hope you mean the max file upload limit.

Most likely it's because you have:

  register_globals = Off

Best way to find out is to go through the whole php.ini file. Have the manual

stored in memory and are not written to disk until the whole file has been 
transferred. Thus you may find that you need to increase "memory_limit" as
