I can't say exactly why you're having trouble, but I can confirm that
all components in your technology stack need to support size X or
greater if you're uploading a file of that size.  MediaWiki runs on PHP,
so your php.ini must be configured to support those file sizes.  The
same goes for any Apache modules you may have installed.
