When I try to upload a file that is more than 35k (yes k not M), then the post operation times out. Files 35k and under seem to upload just fine. I checked the /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini, the /etc/apache2/http.conf, and the /var/data/mediawiki/includes/SpecialImport.php file as suggested in many other posts and they are set for 2M. What could be the problem? I tested the upload using IE on XP, Firefox on XP, and Safari on OS X.
I checked the /var/log/apache2/access.log and the Special:Upload post command seems to have had a HTTP status of 200, so the problem seems to be with MediaWiki and not PHP.
Should the files use 2M for 2 Meg or should they be in bytes?
I'm new to Linux and PHP, so I've included the full paths in case I am looking in the wrong place.
Thanks for your help
