The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini

I’m curious to know what a good maxfile size is for Omeka S. Especially where oral history audio files are involved.

Really it’s just your own decision to make. The defaults for some installs of PHP are quite conservative, but if you need to have a certain size and you control the server it’s probably okay to just set the max upload size accordingly. Please note, you must also make post_max_size at least as large as upload_max_filesize (and potentially much larger, if you want to allow uploading multiple files simultaneously).

If your files are very large you might want to use File Sideload instead and sidestep this issue… but audio shouldn’t be so very large.

Thanks! We went to 256MB for now. If we have gigantic files we can look into File Sideload.
