Hi Miriam:

Sorry for the late reply (maybe better late than ever? :-)
Did you ensure that you don't have any limitation on the file-size side?
When attempting to upload a file (in file galeries?), check the maximum file size shown by tiki there (read from the apache settings, assuming that the webserver of your site is apache)

Let's say, if your MP3 is 15 MB, and the php limitation for file upload is 2 Mb, then you are in trouble (Tiki can't do much 'per se'), but you can try to change the settings for the webserver, so that php or mysql don't get indigestion with big files to be uploaded.

You can try uncommenting the line in the .htaccess provided in Tiki 6.x+ which refers to the param upload max file size (or similar, writing from the top of my head). A webserver restart might be needed (not sure).

There might be another case, if you use db to store your files (from file galleries) in. In this case, the setting which limits the maximum file size has another name, but there is some equivalent setting somewhere. If the previous trick with the .htaccess file doesn't solve your problem, then provide more details, and we'll do our best to guide you.

My 2 cents.

Hi Rick,

Thank you ever so much for your reply. The file is simply not uploading for some reason, I am not sure if I need an add on in order for our version of tiki to recognise MP3 files? For image files I know that they must be in pdf, jpeg or png format. Do you know if this might be the case?

Best wishes

Miriam

Are you getting a specific error when you upload the files?
