Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

NOTE: The Approach A sections referred to below do not apply to Bitnami native installers. Users of Bitnami native installers should refer only to the Approach B sections.

Approach A: Bitnami installations using system packages

Modify the following options in the installdir/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 installdir/ctlscript.sh restart php-fpm

Approach B: Self-contained Bitnami installations

Modify the following options in the installdir/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 installdir/ctlscript.sh restart apache
$ sudo installdir/ctlscript.sh restart php-fpm
