Modify the phpMyAdmin 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.

To increase the allowed size for uploads, follow the steps below:

Approach A: Bitnami installations using system packages

Modify the following options in the php.ini file:

upload_max_filesize=80M
post_max_size=80M

Approach B: Self-contained Bitnami installations

If the default NGINX Web server configuration limits are too low for the file sizes you plan to upload, you can also increase those limits in the /opt/bitnami/nginx/conf/nginx.conf file, by setting the client_max_body_size parameter to a new value in MB, as shown below:

    http {
        ...
        client_max_body_size 16M;
        ...

If you are using PHP-FPM, modify the settings in the /opt/bitnami/apps/phpmyadmin/conf/php-fpm/php-settings.conf file

php_value[upload_max_filesize]=80M
php_value[post_max_size]=80M
