I recall various problems with CGI on a Windows host.  One problem is it often can't clean out the 'temp' space (garbage collection).  When it uploads, it builds CGI temp files which have the format CGInnnnnnnnn with no extension. It does not always successfully clean them out. Depending on the setup this can lead to a situation where there is no space to build files and CGI craps out.  LOL - I know cause it has happened to me on a Windows server.

Deti was the one who clued me in on the fix and where the variable was stored (that points to where the temp space is allocated)

I got stuck working another 18 hour shift so, I just got around to trying it. Didn't work for me either. Not a big deal.

Okay, I know this sounds like a stupid question - but I've done it to myself before - are you absolutely sure you were logged in as admin?

Plus since that section of code is for denying an oversize file, I don't see any way to turn it into an 'allow exception' code. Derek's solution is the most logical way to create an exception for the admin by adding 'if poster is not admin...'

I'm thinking the '!' is missing from "!$iamadmin".

Roughly translated into English that function reads: If there is a size limit and the file being uploaded is larger than the limit, stop and complain.

Derek's addition is supposed to make it read: If the poster is not an admin and if there is a size limit and the file being uploaded is larger than the limit, stop and complain.

It's still stopping and complaining.


Sad no i had !$iamadmin and when that dident work i removed the ! and just had $iamadmin and got the same error then i tryed adding a new line with "else and !$iamadmin some more code" but it just spat a Untrapped Error : syntax error at  out at me
so posted here that the "!$iamadmin dident work for me and then i will setup a test board tomorrow and then see how i can syntax the code so i can add a else or else if or something im in no way any good with perl but i will give it a good go  Smiley and if it dont work oh well  Embarrassed lol Smiley

Hi again Merv,

For no limits, this should do the trick:

In Sources/Post.pl find:

Code (Perl)
Select All
            if ($limit && $filesize > (1024 * $limit)) { 


And replace with:

Code (Perl)
Select All
            if (!$iamadmin && $limit && $filesize > (1024 * $limit)) { 





with this i still get
Code
Select All
The last POST request did output an error message: 413 Request entity too large
