Simple steps on how to increase the video size upload in phpFox

First, you need to login to your site as an Admin.

Go to User Groups to manage the settings of the user group. By default, phpFox script has 4 different UserGroups as shown in the picture below. But you can add more user groups as you want.

Select the specific UserGroup that you would like to increase the video size upload. After selecting the specific user group, select the Video under the Core Apps settings.


By default, the script maximum video file size under the Registered User is 10MB. You can change this value to any value you want.

After changing the value of Maximum file size of video uploaded (MB) to 100, click Save Changes.

After Saving the changes, you will need to clear the cache in order for your changes to take effect. Just go to Maintenance >> Cache Manager > click CLEAR CACHE button.


After clearing the cache, you can go back to your site's frontend and check if the video upload size setting was changed.

As you can see, the Max file size for the video upload was changed to 100MB. 

From now on, you will be able to control the file size of the videos your members can upload to your site.
