The Server Nazi here has declared a 4MB file upload size on the server. In general, this isn’t a problem, but we have several clients who want to upload larger PDFs. A 7MB PDF still isn’t very large - a company could easily make that with their Annual Shareholder Report or something like that, which is the kind of thing our clients want to put on their websites. If they need to put anything larger on, we need to give FTP instructions, which confuses un-techy clients.
I want to recommend a 10MB cap (that still stops users from uploading massive files that would use bandwidth, not that that’s ever been an issue for us) but I need something to substantiate that. What limit are you guys putting on? Is there a magical sysadmin article that people like to refer to?
