Tech:Increase filesize limit

From Wikitravel Shared
Jump to: navigation, search

Our hard limit for uploaded files is 8MB. Commons has a limit of 100MB. I say lets get with the times and increase it to at least 40MB (which should cover the most complex SVGs anyone would be working with here). My SVG map of D.C. has now gone over 8MB, so I can no longer upload updated versions. This means that no one else can edit the current version. It also means that we will not have an online backup in case my hard disc fails. --Peter Talk 13:19, 9 August 2009 (EDT)

  • Support. This must be so easy to change. It has been 10 months since this request. What is the problem please IB? 8mb is far too small given the complexity and scale of some of our maps.--Burmesedays 09:21, 12 May 2010 (EDT)


I have more and more maps I am unable to upload to WT. --Peter Talk 00:07, 13 August 2011 (EDT)

I have added this to the tech queue; I will try to prioritize before other issues that have fewer votes. --IBobi 15:51, 15 August 2011 (EDT)

For reference, the Mediawiki instructions for making this change are at http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Configuring_file_uploads#Set_maximum_size_for_file_uploads. -- Ryan 18:39, 15 August 2011 (EDT)
Tech is looking into this today. I will hopefully have an update by tomorrow.--IBobi 19:40, 12 September 2011 (EDT)
If someone would like to test this for us and let me know if it is resolved adequately, please do? Thank you.--IBobi 17:29, 15 September 2011 (EDT)
I tried a 12.6MB and a 21.9MB file (both ones that I've wanted to upload for some time), but both failed in the same manner as before—after a long uploading time, the page goes back to a blank special:upload form. I have larger SVG files to try as well, but it seems clear that it is not yet working. --Peter Talk 00:51, 17 September 2011 (EDT)
Sorry about that, Peter. I'll let you know when we have this up, and thank you for testing for us.--IBobi 12:59, 19 September 2011 (EDT)
Please try uploading large files (up to 64MB) when you have a chance.--IBobi 14:24, 19 September 2011 (EDT)
I tested multiple files over 8MB, including my largest SVG on hand, at 35.69 MB, and all worked fine. Looks to be done! --Peter Talk 23:01, 19 September 2011 (EDT)

Awesome! We look forward to your top-notch maps, Peter.--IBobi 15:23, 20 September 2011 (EDT)
