xplico pcap File Upload Fails

I have been playing around with xplico which is a NFAT (Network Forensics Analysis Tool) tool included in Backtrack Linux. Pretty cool application though there are some things I am still figuring out or may be caused by the version be older in Backtrack. One of the main items where I could see new users to Xplico running into is actually noted numerous times on Xplico’s website and so I simply wanted to expand on what has already been noted there. If you are having issues uploading pcap files via the Xplico web interface then it is likely related to the size of the pcap file and the size that the Apache web server will accept. Use the information below to modify the web server configuration to allow larger files to be uploaded.

phpMyAdmin: During SQL Imports What Does kKiB Mean, How to Modify Max File Import Size

Recently I had to import some files via phpMyAdmin because the web host of my client didn’t allow SSH access to the server or direct access to the MySQL command line. The need was to create a database and restore a previous backup from another database into MySQL. I noticed that on the Import screen there were a couple things I was curious about. First what kKiB meant and if I wanted to how would I change the max size file I could import.

What does kKiB Mean?

PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 25165824 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 491520 bytes) in /path/to/file

I received the below error during the process of a ZenCart shopping cart upgrade. The error was noticed when navigating through the ZenCart store admin via a web browser. I wanted to post a resolution because I wasn’t able to locate the exact resolution to my answer online and it took me awhile to locate the issue. Most of the resolutions I located on the Internet talked about modifying the post_max_size or other options located in the php.ini file however no matter what I changed these to I ended up receiving the same error.
