Component: Central server Keywords: upload, error message

The message:

"The file upload failed. Please try again. There was an error uploading the file."

appears when uploading a file above the current file size limit.
Yet, this is not an error but a policy.

There is not much I can do about this. The file is stopped by Apache and PHP long before my application gets to it. There are many reasons why a file upload can fail. Being too large is just one of them. I can't reliably detect why the upload failed.

I have slightly improved the error message a bit. That's all I can do.
