I was just finishing testing a featured listings and noticed that when I upload a photo to the featured listing, the site would stall out and the browser would go white. I tried to upload a photo 3 times and also verified that the image was not being stored on the server via FTP.

I have added the following script to my php5.ini with no prevail:

post_max_size = 10MB
upload_max_filesize = 10MB
memory_size_limit = 10MB

Can anyone assist?

Hi there,
Flynax Upload photos function do not only upload the photos on the server it also do other operations with it, operations like:
- copy the original photo to thumbnail and large photo
- crop all copies
- re-size all copies
All these operations takes many server resources, memory in our case.

Well we suggest increasing server memory_limit for single directory only, you just should create new php.ini file (or copy it from server main php.ini)
and put it to the following directory: /flynax/libs/upload/
Then you should change memory_limit option to maximum possible value (256 or 512 MB) in the file.

After steps above your website will be able to handle enough large files, let's keep discussing this issue in this thread.
