swfupload file size error 500 problem

recently i’ve been having problems with my file uploads not working on large files. even after i told the php.ini file to allow 2000m files and verified this was the case in my php info();

found i could override the apache / php settings within the domains .htaccess file. here’s what i’m using

php_value memory_limit 2000M
php_value post_max_size 2000M
php_value upload_max_filesize 2000M

works like a charm. thanks internet.
