My understanding of those settings is that: "upload_max_filesize" determines the maximum size of a file and "post_max_size" determines the maximum size of the post which is all the bits of a form -- all the inputs, the textareas, the files etc. Thus the settings you have above would limit your max file size to 2MB. > 2.

Try increasing the "upload_max_filesize" and see what happens -- Jason Wong -> Gremlins Associates -> www.gremlins.com.hk /* You own a dog, but you can only feed a cat. */ -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
