I'm facing an issue with file uploads in PHP and I need some guidance on how to handle errors specifically related to the maximum file size being exceeded. I have a file upload form on my website where users can upload documents, images, and other files.
However, when a user tries to upload a file that is larger than the allowed maximum file size, I would like to display an appropriate error message to them. I want to ensure that the user knows why their upload has failed and what they can do to resolve the issue.
I understand that PHP has various configuration settings related to file uploads, such as `upload_max_filesize` and `post_max_size`, which determine the maximum file size that can be uploaded. But I'm not sure how to handle the error gracefully and inform the user about the maximum file size limitation.
Is there a specific PHP function or method that can help me detect when the maximum file size is exceeded? How can I capture this error and display a user-friendly message? Additionally, if there are any best practices or recommendations for handling file upload errors in PHP, I would greatly appreciate your insights.
Thank you in advance for your assistance!
