I think you have to ask your host, but just in case what are the attachments settings in your ACP?

Check you server error logs as they should give you better information on the error.

If that is from php.ini double check the reported values in ACP >> System >> php information link on left. They can't be increased above max values imposed by server configuration. As side note post_max_size should be slightly larger than upload_max_filesize. max_execution_time is another value that can cause issues.

With that said AFAIK if you are uploading through plupload this shouldn't come into play, it uploads in chunks allowing you to circumvent uploaded file size limitations.

Nothing in the error logs that I can see

I pulled the values from the ACP, and they match my php.ini. max_execution_time is 180

Idk, That's what the browser is telling me

I figured out what the problem was. I needed to add client_max_body_size 64M; to the http section of my nginx.conf
