SpaceView Image Handling

SpaceView Work Request Image Handling

When work is requested in SpaceView users have the option to upload an image that demonstrates their request if that functionality is enabled through the SpaceView configuration settings. The usual standard is to limit the image upload size to 2mb, but IIS can be configured to allow up to 20mb images allow for image uploading directly from mobile devices where it is not convenient to resize the image first.

Technical Details

This requires a PHP configuration change and an IIS (Internet Information Services) restart after the change is made. In the php.ini configuration file, the variables updated to allow for larger file/image uploads and POST transfers are

upload_max_filesize = 2M to 20M

post_max_size = 8M to 20M

Once these changes are made, restart IIS for the site to read the new .ini file updates.


These larger files will require extra storage space in the Database. It should be discussed with IT whether the space exists to handle these images before this functionality is enabled.
