I want to mess around with some settings on my server and as im on a shared host i need to create a .htaccess file.
I want to allow users to upload files bigger than the 2m default....ive found this resource at php.net which lists all the php.ini directives and ive tried to locate all the ones i think will need changing to enable me to do this.
I have a few questions as ive never done this before. Firstly how do i put the .htaccess file together, do i simply list the directives i need and then save the file as .htaccess? Secondly, is anyone aware of any other directives i need to put in there to enable bigger file uploads ( im sure theres one relating to timeout of the script or browser or something but i cant find it.) and lastly where do i put the file....in the root or outside?
thanks for any suggestions
