Joomla 2.5.17 “WARNFILETOOLARGE” error

I found a strange error on new joomla 2.5.17 installation… not sure is it a joomla bug or my hosting bug (I updated php.ini after joomla instal so I suppose that could be a reason as well).

The problem is with image upload in media manager, every time I try to upload image I got “WARNFILETOOLARGE” error.

Default size of upload files is defined in media manager options and in my case it’s set to 10mb (it should be joomla default).

Also if I put maximum file size 50 or 50000 I get the same error: WARNFILETOOLARGE

I noticed that if I enter 0 I get “This file is too large to upload.” error

And finaly afte some time I got it, for some reason size is not in mb than for some strange reason in bytes so if I enter 10 000 000 wich is 10 mb in bytes everything seems to work normal.
