"Request Entity Too Large" error while uploading photos

Tried to upload 93 photos, each 72x72 ppi at 8x5" (which I have done multiple times before) and received this error message:

Request Entity Too Large

The requested resource
does not allow request data with POST requests, or the amount of data provided in the request exceeds the capacity limit.
Apache/2.2.8 (Ubuntu) mod_auth_tkt/2.1.0 mod_jk/1.2.25 PHP/5.2.4-2ubuntu5.7 with Suhosin-Patch mod_ssl/2.2.8 OpenSSL/0.9.8g Server at sitebuilder.yola.com Port 80

My other issue is that it is very inconvenient to have to select every photo individually that I want to upload because of this stupid and needless queue thing. It's annoying to spend 20 minutes selecting photos to upload because I suddenly can no longer select all the photos at once. Especially when you receive an error like this afterwards. Whomever thought this was a good idea, or solved a nonexistent problem, they were greatly mistaken.

Hello Tasha,

The size limit refers to the files size and not the image dimensions. The limit depends on the hosting subscription you have and is 5 Mb for Bronze and 100 Mb for Silver per upload.

Hello Tasha,

Instead of selecting each photo individually, you could zip them together in one file, upload the zipped file and then unzip the photos in Yola. Or you can select multiple images at once for uploading by selecting the first image, hold down the Shift key and then click on the last image. Here is a tutorial that gives more details: https://www.yola.com/tutorials/articl...
