How do you upload the files? Large files should be always uploaded with FTP or sftp.

I know - but i can't even install new templates or components in Joomla! CMS.. It's a major problem..:(

Ok, you mean you can connect with FTP with the user which is the administrator of the website but you can not upload any files inside the "web" folder?

Apparently it has something to do with "LimitRequestBody" in php.conf.. But where is php.conf located? :confused:

If you upload with FTP, it has nothing to do with a PHP setting. Please try to answer my questions above, otherwise I can not help you if you dont tell me how you upload the files.

No - it has nothing to do with FTP - The component and template installer in Joomla!CMS is based on php upload..

Ok, but then you should tell us in the first post that you have a problem with joomla and not with file uplodas in general or ISPConfig.

Please have a look at the php.ini file (/etc/php5/apache/php.ini or a similar path) andset the limits for post requests and file uploads to a higher limit and restart apache.

Oh - of cause.. My fault..:) I'll try it..

post_max_size = 8M

upload_max_filesize = 2M

File size = 812 kb

No change..:(

One with the same problem: - I need to change "LimitRequestBody", but i don't know where..
