Breaking: #71110 - TYPO3-specific Upload Limit removed

See forge#71110


TYPO3 has a specific upload limit setting, that is set to 10MB by default, to manually limit down the PHP-specific setting max_upload_limit. If not configured properly the PHP limit was lower than the TYPO3-specific limit.

The TYPO3 setting $TYPO3_CONF_VARS['BE']['maxFileSize'] has been removed and the PHP-internal limit is now the upper barrier.


Setting the option mentioned above has no effect anymore. The PHP limit is used instead.

The TCA setting max_size for fe_users.image has been removed, allowing editors to upload images with a size up to the PHP-specific limit.

Affected Installations

Extensions that use $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['BE']['maxFileSize'] as default for the TCA setting max_size need adjustment, if the PHP-specific upload limit is higher than $TYPO3_CONF_VARS['BE']['maxFileSize'].


Explicitly set a value for max_size or drop those lines from your TCA configuration.
