Hi all! =)

I've been unable to upload pdf files over 2MB on my kunena forum:

I have however been able to upload files of around 1MB:

I made certain my allotted maximum file size was correctly set in my Joomla 2.5:

Made certain my php.ini files were set to the correct allotment on both my public_html/administrator and my security suite's configuration(10MB):

My anti-virus scanner is set to let all file types through and scan up to 15MB:

Yet still, files of over 2MB are not being uploaded - they will show their progress in the bottom status bar of my browser (Uploading...(45%) etc.) but once they reach 100, only the message posts and just a not helpful error message is left up. And it's not the usual " Failed to upload file '*.pdf': The file size (1058776) exceeds the maximum set by the administrator. " that one might normally get with the backend settings in Kunena are too low.

Truly at a loss here and I feel as though I've exhausted every possible venue I could think of. As anyone ever encountered anything like this or have any idea what I'm missing? If this is completely foreign to everyone here then perhaps its an issue with my Joomla or Security Suite settings, Kunena is highly well-known for their excellent, responsive support though so I thought I'd check here first.

Thank you very very much for your time and attention.
Best Wishes,
Brad

Although my ability to upload the very same pdf to my media manager leads me to suspect it might be something centered within kunena.

Update:

I was able to upload the large pdf file on my local testing server. Which switches my attention back to my security suite because that's only active on my live site or perhaps another server-side issue.

Ergo, Kunena is likely not at fault here. Case is more or less closed as far as this post goes then.

Will delete in next 24 hours unless I receive advice or guidance on the issue.

Cheers! =)

Solved!

Resolution:

Make sure you set your upload_max_filesize & post_max_size to 10M (or whatever you prefer) in your php.ini root folders in BOTH your websites root folder and Admin root folder.
