First of all, a promise. I will; NOT abandon this support forum thread. I will actively monitor it and appreciate your contributions.
This has been an issue on my VirtualMin host for a number of months. The site primarily serves downloads, so a helping hand with this game breaker would be nice
Old installation of VirtualMin (4years+)
Learning platform carried into live from LIVE
Many changes made that I may not have fully understood.
I’ve been running this install of VirtualMin for a while and I prefer not to nuke it and start again - every issue solved contributes to learning. I learnt all that I know starting with VirtualMin and home VPS hosting.
On my WordPress site, BMSworld.nz, I am unable to upload any .ZIP file greater than 100MB.
60MB = noticeably slower upload considering workstation > server in same room
80MB = slower still, higher chance of failure
100MB, Guaranteed failure to upload.
Note that a failure to upload is defined as - Uploading a .zip to a Wordpress Download Manager. Upload starts but stalls immediately if >100MB
Checked with Plugin Author who remotely went over my system and determined that there’s no issue with their plugin.
Maximum HTTP POST size = 5000MB Maximum file upload size = 5000MB
/home/bmsworld/etc/php7.0/php.ini < this file defines the above values: CONFIRMED
The above php.ini file is KNOWN but not CONFIRMED to be the directives in play. Wouldn’t be able to imagine any reason why the only php.ini file would be ignored or directives read from somewhere else?
I have already put a fair bit of research into this issue on my webhost at home. Find myself here.
Remote access can be granted and a donation offered if you can fix this. It’s driving me nuts!
As requested: https://www.bmsworld.nz/phpinfo.php
php.ini files loaded specify an increased execution time, memory amount max post size etc as appropriate.
Have not yet investigated whether virtualmin is picking up any files in the /etc/php/7.0/cgi/conf.d directory though.
Also, this might be a nugget.
Ignoring the mixed content to be fixed (FINALLY the last mixed item to fix that is … )
With the screenshot below, we might be leaving the realm of VirtualMin support scope. Feel free to validate this.
NB: DevTools screenshot was taken at the moment the upload froze.
That’s for a visitor to your site, not the admin of the site being run. They’re not going to host a file server for free. You’re completely misrepresenting what that setting is.
Example: I can upload a 12 GB video file to my site from my admin panel if I want to with no problem at all. But they’re not going to let 15 visitors to my site do that at the same time because it would be ridiculous amounts of traffic for Cloudflare to give away for free.
You’re confusing what your visitors to your domain can do with what you personally can do on that same domain as an admin of the site. They are two separate things.
I can tell you that .nz is not supported in the United States. I don’t know if that’s what’s causing you some issues but I do know that in the U.S. you’ll get the dreaded TLD not supported error every single time using that domain name.
Here it is from GoDaddy:
About .nz domains
Domain Name Commission is the sponsor and Key Systems is our backend provider for the country-code top-level domain name (ccTLD) .nz extension that represents New Zealand.
Who can register .nz domains?
Anyone can register a .co.nz, .net.nz, .org.nz domain.
yeah txt have nothing to do with upload same for lets enctrypt… txt is about emails and lets encrypt is about ssl… EH!
on wordpress end it would be php configuration and make sure you have ram… I managed in past to get uploads about 1gigs… I think I have somewhere screenshots… I will post them to you here once I find old hdd…setup is via web - possibly meaning answer to your question… however how about ssh? like upload files via filezilla? no?
@produKtnz as I seen your HAR screenshot - you have to fix your html in your website but this would still have no affect on your upload speed. You just need to fix mixed content within your page.
