Uploads provide a convenient way to "attach" files, images in particular, in you site's pages.

Uploads (attachments) are enabled for all authors by default because it's anticipated that most site administrators would want that.
Setting an Upload Password
You can set an "upload" password that will require authors to to know that password if they want to upload files. If you prefer to do that,
- comment out the line in local/config.php that starts with
$HandleAuth['upload']by inserting a
#at the beginning of that line, then
- uncomment the second line (by removing the
#at the beginning of that line) and add an upload password.
If you prefer to disable uploads altogether, comment out the line that starts with
$HandleAuth['upload'] by inserting a
# at the beginning of that line. Both lines will be commented out like this:
# $HandleAuth['upload'] = 'edit'; // If you can edit, you can upload # $DefaultPasswords['upload'] = pmcrypt(''); // Must know upload password
Delete the ''uploads/' directory if you disable uploads before files have been uploaded.
Setting the Maximum Upload Size
By default all uploads are limited to 2048K bytes. You can change that limit. Find the line that looks like this:
$UploadMaxSize = 2097152; // Two megs
and make the appropriate change.
Note: Webserver software and PHP may also set limits on upload file size.
