Max image size VS max attachment size


(Anton) #1

What’s the difference between max image size kb and max attachment size kb site settings?
What is used where? It is not obvious from the settings page.

Attachments is for file attachments. Excel, Word, TXT, PDF, etc.

Images is for images: PNG, GIF, JPG, things that can be displayed as images.

Hey there. They both say

This must be configured in nginx (client_max_body_size) / apache or proxy as well.

So what’s the real difference? Those values have to match the nginx ones or are those in nginx like a top limit and we can put anything less or equal to settings?

Thanks.

This is correct. You may as well have them match if you increase them at all, though.
