Attachment-size problem

Hi,
I'm running an up-to-date, un-modded install of phpBB 3 and have an odd attachment problem.

I have max attachment size set to 48 MiB and have no problem with files up to about 8 MB.

Trying to upload any file larger than that reloads a new, blank "new topic" page after you click the "add the file" button - any text in the subject and body fields is gone and you're back to square one.
If it was a legitimate file-size error I'd think that there would be a "your file is too big" message and the filled-in fields wouldn't be cleared, right?

Is there a setting I'm missing somewhere?
Thanks!
Al

The size of the files you can upload will ultimately be limited by the upload_max_filesize setting in your hosts php.ini file. You can use the PHP Information link in the ACP to see what that setting is. I am guessing it is 8 MB.

Thanks Steve!
It was actually the post_max_size value in the php.ini - I had that reset and it's now working just fine.
