    I get this error when trying to upload a pdf file to my downloads section:

    How do I adjust this filesize? Where is the php.ini file located?

    Are you on a dedicated server of some kind? If not (you are on a shared webhost) you will have to ask your webhost to change the setting for you.

    yes, mine is run through a hosting company. What should I suggest it be changed to? I will be the only one placing documents in the downloads section so I guess its safe to put in a high number?

    What other limits are governed by the php.ini file to consider so I can take care of this all at once?

    Whatever suites you best! What is the maximum size of the file you would be uploading? Take that as a guideline.

    500mb max.

    Remember that if the connection gets interupted on a large file, you will have to start the upload again.
