Max File Size Uploads on a WordPress Multisite Install

I had a client with a fairly large multisite.  He needed the size limits for new media uploads to be around 8 megs.  I tried adjusting php.ini

upload_max_filesize = 8M
poas_max_size = 8M

Nope, still limited.  I tried adding define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘8M’); to the wp-config.php file, still limited to 1MB when trying to upload.  Well, it’s simple.  In the WP Network Admin go to Network Settings, scroll to the bottom and voila:
Site upload space Limit total size of files uploaded to “Max upload file size” set in KB’s.  Just changed that to 8000 and everything was a go!
