Describe the bug
I am unable to upload attachments larger than 256MB (according to the error).

Steps To Reproduce

  1. Running Ubuntu 18.04 - used installation script
  2. updated /etc/php/7.2/apache2/php.ini
memory_limit = 2048M
post_max_size = 2048M
upload_max_filesize = 2048M
  1. Go to any page and try an upload file larger that 256MB
    4: Get error "File is too big (filesize). Max filesize: 256MiB."



  • BookStack v0.25.1

Sorry @kramester to see you're hitting issues here.

Looks like this is a limit set in the file-upload library.
We can look ot make this configurable as we have done for the timeout, Shouldn't be too tricky.
Have assigned to the next patch release.

How is this fix enabled? I tried adding something like
<script> window.uploadLimit = 512; </script>
to the Custom HTML head content but it didn't change anything.

@Zeigren Are you on the latest BookStack release?
Do you get the exact same error message? Please screenshot it if you can.

Might be an idea to open a new issue since this one is closed, otherwise comments may be missed.
