How do I increase my file size limit for uploads and attachments? [Moodle version 2.9]


The maximum file size Moodle currently supports is 64MB.

If you have a file between 64.1MB and 2GB, you can use Trinity’s own Large File Transfer (LFT) service. LFT FAQ can be found on the Technology Services website.

If your file is larger than 2GB, submit a help ticket to see what additional options you may have.

If you would like your course’s upload limit to be the site-wide maximum of 64MB, you can update your course settings to allow this.
