How do I upload a large publication?

As of January, 2013, there is a 20Mb limit on file uploads.

The primary reason is that the entire file must fit in memory, which can lead to PhP Denial of Service Attacks.

If you have a file that is larger, try:

  • Print to PDF
  • Print to 2-up PDF
  • In Acrobat, use Document | Reduce File Size on the PDF

If you really must have a large publication uploaded, then upload a small place holder version of the document and get the full size upload to webadmin at terraswarm. Emailing a large attachment might fail, an alternative is to transfer via a website or via a USB drive.
