This is somewhat unusual. Out of the box, the server's php software has a 2MB size limit. I've seen a 10MB default file size in phpfox product itself. I'm not sure where the 5Mb limit you're seeinig comes from?

I would highly suggest you review the phpfox v4 documentation on the subject, specifically the following pages:

Additionally, if you're a server guy and you know what you're doing, check your system's php.ini file. It may NOT be in /etc!!!
Drop a phpinfo page on your site and double check what php.ini your installation uses. Or alternatively, contact your hosting provider's support folks and ask them to increase the php max upload size and max post size. They should be able to do this for you fairly easily.

Hopefully this helps your specific case.

Thank you very much t3ln3t !  ... excellent information! 

Have you some good news:  found the setting to change this not sure why is there but here you go:

John Jr helped me to track the error text: "Unable to upload. You have reached the limit of 5 Mb. With this upload it will use more ..." in Globalization>Phrases...and he found that was related to the User App.

Went to Members>Usergroup Settings and found this in User App/module: "The total amount of space a user can use when uploading to the server (eg. photos, videos, songs etc...) in megabytes (mb). Set to "0" for unlimited space."

It is the #26 setting from top...more or less...Then checked all my usergroups quota...none of them was set to 5...except one: REGISTERED USER

Changed another number and Voila !! the limit size when uploading a photo in pages...AS PAGE..not AS MEMBER...changed to the new one i wrote.

It would only remain to understand the relationship between registered users and uploading a photo(or video) in pages as the page not as member.

Hi Terry,

I am sorry for misunderstanding your questions. I would like to explain the feature as below:
1. If a user/member tries to view the photo which is created on a page then the system will redirect them to the photo detail page and focus on the Photo menu, this is not a  bug, it's a rule of our platform.
2. If you are logging in as a Page, the main menu of the site will be automatically hidden, then you can view the photo within the page or group and it won't redirect you to the Photo module.

Hope the above information is helpful for you.

AdminCp (type in search bar to find setting.)

  • URL Redirect After Login
  1. After a user has logged in and they have not requested a page to visit you can set a default redirection URL, which will send them to this specific page right after they log in. So you can send them to the main feed.
  • Redirect After SignUp
  1. Add the full path you want to send users right after they register. If you want to use our default routine just leave this blank.  So you can send them to profile/my.


Complete profile...these apps might help.

Hi vijay,

We would like to confirm that phpFox does not support "View on Maps" feature for Group and Page. If you want this feature, please contact us via custom work service which incurs additional cost.

Hi Hannah,

Thank you for the reply! Yes, my site is entirely SSL configured. I think I may have been impatient and not allowing Google enought time to update my APIs... I tested this morning and everything is working fine now.

Sorry about the unnecessary thread.

Yes, only if you do it from the backend.  The easiest way to understand it is to use your development site on a fresh install and use excel and copy what is in the tables listed above naming the table name, name of fields and what data is in a fresh install.  Then add one page or group and then go back to each table and update the table using a different color font color.  Then add another page and repeat with a different color.  With three records you should see the pattern for each table when adding a page.  You can then use excel saved as a CSV to import straight into each database table.  One time I uploaded 900 pages, and it worked perfect...but the list above is a few years old so they might have changed things a little.
