  • Odd values in PHP Selector

    So, I was updating a customers values, so he could upload larger files, then I noticed some odd values in the PHP Selector.

    memory_limit has the max of 512M to choose and has the tooltip:
    The maximum amount of memory in bytes a scripts is allowed to allocate.
    It does only let you choose by set values and the tooltip also adds "Set the value to -1 to have no memory limit" which then isnt possible since smallest you can choose is 64M

    Moving on to post_max_size the span you can select ranges from 2M to 128M. The tooltip reads as:
    The maximum size in bytes of data that can be posted with the POST method. Typically, should be larger than upload_max_filesize and smaller than memory_limit.
    Since this has a max of 128M, it will be smaller than memory_limit in most cases, so that makes sense, but how come we cant do larger than 128M?

    Next up we have upload_max_filesize, and here is where its getting a bit messy. You can choose filesizes in the range from 2M to 1G, which is way larger than what you can set post_max_size to. While 1G big file might be more than most users need, they still cant upload larger than 128M due to the post_max_size which is supposed to be larger than upload_max_filesize. It would make sense to have memory_limit cap at 4G and post_max_size at 2G if we have upload_max_filesize as 2G, or am I misunderstanding something?

    Thank you for reading. Hopefully everything is understandable.
