Upload video content

Hi all,

I am totally new to Kirby and to cms at all :wink:
I have installed Kirby and the sample project. Everything is runnin well. But I need to upload video files, but this doesn’t work.

Do I need to configure something to upload video files instead of pictures ?

Thnx and greetings


No, you don’t have to configure Kirby. But your PHP settings may prevent bigger uploads.

Things you should check are your php.ini settings:

  • post_max_size
  • memory_limit
  • upload_max_filesize
  • max_execution_time

All these settings influence the size of files that may be uploaded.
Are you on a remote server (shared hosting)? In shared hosting environments, the max_execution_time is often limited, a fact that sometimes makes it impossible to upload big files, especially when the connection is slow.
