Configuring Nginx and PHP 7 stack in Linux to increase or decrease file upload size limit

PHP web applications can utilize Nginx as the reverse proxy server and PHP FPM as the upstream server. Whenever you encounter HTTP file upload issues, limitation in file upload size is one common cause.

This post shows how to adjust the file upload size limit for your application running on a Nginx-PHP stack in Linux.


Deciding which HTTP status code to use in a HTTP response

When we are in the business of creating web applications, we are always crafting HTTP responses.

A HTTP communication session is initated with a HTTP request from the client and is ended with a HTTP response from the server. In order for a HTTP communication session to take place successfully, the server must be reachable via an IP Address and a port number.

However, a successful HTTP communication session does not imply that the client always get what it wants from the server. Within the HTTP response, the server tells the client whether or not the HTTP request is plausible to fulfill via HTTP status codes.

This is a discussion of some of the status codes that I use at the HTTP server end, in an environment where most of my HTTP clients are robotic in nature.
