I updated the max file size upload for the forum/group to 10,240,000 and set the max number of files to 20. The upload popup shows the max number of files is 20 but the max file size is still showing "Maximum size per file is 2 MB." The number of files took affect, but not the max size? Any thoughts?

Is there any particular reason you guys are allowing gigs of data to be uploaded? Real word limits are generally in the megabyte range...

Lol, I only have about fifty gigs of spare space on my server, I'd hate to have to host huge amounts of data like that.

I was mainly trying to figure out the type of content getting posted that one would be such high limits since I generally find that a 20meg limit and only allowing 10 attachments generally suits my needs.

I have seen some communities that share super high resolution images that could have quite high limits in place.

I am running on AWS LightSail, 2.50-5 dollars a month for the instance and 15-20 per month for storage. We run a lot of pictures and video, about 10Tb which are mounted on S3 storage. Very nice performance at very low costs. The only setup issue with a fresh forum is you have to manually go in and set a lot of file/directory permissions. I have a cloud AMI image if anyone wants it that has the forum already built, just have to create an instance from the image.
