Hello Chantal,

Thank you for your question. I found a post in the Official Joomla Forum, where they are discussing your exact issue: WARNFILETOOLARGE after update to 2.5.17.

Also, I would also use a PHPinfo page to ensure your settings are changing.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.

Thank you,
