Silly PHP upload limits
One of the things that I find really unhelpful is that PHP by default has a silly small upload limit, normally I get around this on a per site basis by editing .htaccess with the following,
php_value memory_limit = 500M php_value upload_max_filesize =500M php_value post_max_size =500M
However I can add some stuff to the end of /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini to make it a global change:
memory_limit = 500M upload_max_filesize = 500M post_max_size = 500M
Sentora / zPanel have some odd configuration choices as default, so we want to make some small changes.
