Hey, guys. I had Omeka running at www.singleplayer.com but when I tried to upload a file I got an error. I edited the htaccess file to remove the # at the beginning of the appropriate line, and now my entire site is giving me a 500 Internal Server Error. What have I done wrong? I uploaded an unedited file back to it and it's still down.
If you put the pound sign back and its still broken, it must be something else.
Did you make any other changes?
I don't think so. I'm totally new at this, though I've messed with computers my whole life. I just tried re-uploading the whole thing and now I still get the 500 internal server error.
500 errors are logged by your server, you should be able to check your Apache error log (or have your host do the same) to see what Apache (or PHP) is complaining about specifically.
Hey, while I'm at it, is there any way to upload files to Omeka that are larger than 32 megs? I'm planning on using Omeka to store video clips from feature films, and most of them are over 100 megs.
The upload limits for Omeka are determined by your PHP settings:
100 megabyte uploads don't always work so well though, so you can upload with SFTP/FTP/some other means and then use the Dropbox plugin to add the files to Omeka.
