Upload >58meg get HTTP/IO error WP3.51Multisite host LinuxGoDaddy WordPress


For uploading files bigger than 58meg I get HTTP error. or IO error when using media uploader or 500 Internal Server Error when using browser uploader in WordPress v3.5.1 Multisite . It seems to get almost all the way thru the upload before it stops and comes back with the error message. Hosting is LINUX thru Godaddy, they tested a php script to load a 130meg file successfully they can not find anything wrong, I get the error in IE9 or Firefox with or without flash plugin, cache cleared or not, only with files larger than 58megs, mod security fix does not seem to work for this issue either. FTP works fine to upload larger files and uploading files smaller than 58megs works fine, This is a multisite configuration and the errors happen for every site, I do not have any plugins loaded yet, Does anyone have any ideas about how to fix this?
Godaddy says I should be able to upload 192mb files, I can create a php5.ini file that shows that limit,

my php5.ini file is this:
max_execution_time = 1800
max_file_uploads = 2000
memory_limit = 256M
post_max_size = 192M
file_uploads = On
upload_max_filesize = 192M

I reloaded site manually as a single install with the php5.ini file you see above, I still get the same error.

I have tried increasing the network settings file sizes in wordpress network dashboard, I have tried putting various php5.ini files in the root folder and in other folders also, I have tried adding commands to .htaccess such as the setenv phprc or php_value, they do not seem to make a difference either, I still get the same error message and the same limit of 58megs, it still seems to get to the end of the file upload and then stops and give an error message.

I also asked the question at WordPress Answers with no solution,

the site right now is just a test site and has no plugins running, it is a multisite with subdomains. I am open to reloading it or testing various ideas ect. Thank you.

Any Ideas?
