I always run into a memory limit or upload limit issue with Site5. Luckily, they let you set your own php.ini file to up the limits. 

  1. Create an empty php.ini file in your public_html directory
  2. Copy this to a file in the root directory and name it something like phpini.php
  3. You will need to change the $customPath to match your directory. You can find this by creating a file and putting <?php phpinfo();?> in it. Or, if you have command line access, you can run the /cwd command.
  4. You may need to change permissions on the php.ini file to be written. 666 should work okay.
  5. Open the script in your browser by going to http://mysite/phpini.php (script found here: http://tips-scripts.com/php_ini)
- - Start Script Here - -
// Put all the php.ini parameters you want to change below. One per line.
// Follow the example format $parm[] = "parameter = value";
$parm[] = "memory_limit = 64M";

$parm[] = "upload_max_filesize = 400M";

$parm[] = "post_max_size = 100M";
// full unix path - location of the default php.ini file at your host
// you can determine the location of the default file using phpinfo()
$defaultPath = "/usr/local/lib/php.ini"; 
// full unix path - location where you want your custom php.ini file
$customPath = "/home/[site5username]/public_html/[yourdomain.com]/php.ini";
// nothing should change below this line.
if (file_exists($defaultPath)) {
  $contents = file_get_contents($defaultPath); 
  $contents .= "\n\n; USER MODIFIED PARAMETERS FOLLOW\n\n";  
  foreach ($parm as $value) $contents .= $value . " \n";
  if (file_put_contents($customPath,$contents)) {
    if (chmod($customPath,0600)) $message = "The php.ini file has been modified and copied";
      else $message = "Processing error - php.ini chmod failed";
  } else {
    $message = "Processing error - php.ini write failed";
} else {
  $message = "Processing error - php.ini file not found";
echo $message;
