Binder FAQs

Why can't I upload large files?

In order to upload large files, you may have to make adjustments to your web server's configuration. By default, PHP has a maximum upload size of 8MB. To upload larger files, you have to change the PHP "post_max_size" and "upload_max_size" directives in your PHP.ini file.

In addition, the web server software you are using may also have file size limits. For example, if you are using nginx, you must change the "client_max_body_size" setting in your nginx.conf file (this setting can sometimes also be in the server{} or location{} directives).

How do I upload to Amazon S3?

Please follow our guide on Amazon S3 integration.

I've created my Amazon IAM user but still cannot upload files to S3?

Make sure that you have followed all the steps in our Amazon S3 integration instructions. You must make sure to add the "AmazonS3FullAccess" policy to your IAM user.

Can I use the "AmazonS3ReadOnlyAccess"?

No. Binder requires read and write access to your Amazon S3 account.

I've created my Amazon IAM user and added the full access policy but still cannot upload?

Make sure that you have enabled "Amazon S3" in the Binder settings and added your Access Key ID and Secret Access Key.

Also, make sure you edit your field type and select "Amazon S3" for the "Upload Destination Type" as outlined in the last step on our Amazon S3 integration instructions.
