Troubleshooting an upload in Moodle

I've got an oversized (almost 4 GB) media heavy project from another developer that needs to load into a Moodle LMS environment. I already broke the project up into smaller elements, but I'm not getting paid to rebuild it the right way, just doing a favor for a partner organization who shares our LMS space. 

 

The problem is that it seems like anything that approaches 500 MB immediately fails in the upload, even though there's no limit on upload sizes. has anyone else run into this issue?

In a typical Moodle environment there is more than one place that can limit the upload file size.

The Admin settings in Moodle are one place.  But you also need to check that there are no other limits being imposed by the web server or the PHP INI file.

Have you checked all those places?

Downunder is great, at least where I am in the far west of the country.  Easterners are having a COVID breakout at the moment and they've gone into lockdown again.  Borders are closed between states to prevent the spread.  All good here in Western Australia though.  Thanks for asking.
