Modify the file upload limit

NOTE: We are in the process of modifying the file structure and configuration for many Bitnami stacks. On account of these changes, the file paths stated in this guide may change depending on whether your Bitnami stack uses native Linux system packages (Approach A), or if it is a self-contained installation (Approach B). To identify your Bitnami installation type and what approach to follow, run the command below:

 $ test ! -f "/opt/bitnami/common/bin/openssl" && echo "Approach A: Using system packages." || echo "Approach B: Self-contained installation."

The output of the command indicates which approach (A or B) is used by the installation, and will allow you to identify the paths, configuration and commands to use in this guide. Refer to the FAQ for more information on these changes.

Approach A: Bitnami installations using system packages

Modify the following options in the /opt/bitnami/php/etc/php.ini file to increase the allowed size for uploads:

; Maximum size of POST data that PHP will accept.
; Its value may be 0 to disable the limit. It is ignored if POST data reading
; is disabled through enable_post_data_reading.
; http://php.net/post-max-size
post_max_size = 4G

; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
; http://php.net/upload-max-filesize
upload_max_filesize = 4G

Restart PHP-FPM for the changes to take effect.

$ sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh restart php-fpm

Approach B: Self-contained Bitnami installations

Modify the following options in the /opt/bitnami/apps/owncloud/conf/php-fpm/php-settings.conf file to increase the allowed size for uploads:

; Maximum size of POST data that PHP will accept.
php_value[post_max_size]=4000M

; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
php_value[upload_max_filesize]=4000M

Restart PHP-FPM and Apache for the changes to take effect.

$ sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh restart apache
$ sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh restart php-fpm
