I get this error message when ever I try to upload photos. I am able to upload photos of size 10 to 50KB. But, I am not able to upload photos of more than 1 or 2 MB size. Max photo size I have set as 5 MB.

You're running into server-sided limitations imposed by your webhost. It doesn't matter what max filesize you have set in coppermine's config if the webserver itself is not set up to handle larger files. Take a look at the sticky thread on this board to find out what server-sided settings have an impact. The internal server is what the name suggests: an uncaught error, where the webserver "dies" with an unspecific error message. To figure out which one of the server-sided restrictions need review, you will need access to the server's error logs to see what actually went wrong. However, if you're webhosted, you won't be able to change those settings anyway, so the only option you have then is to resize your files on the client before uploading them.
