Changing upload size? Finding the right directory? Restarting?

Posted July 12, 2015 3.6k views

So after reading multiple guides on how to change the upload limit for wordpress, I was not able to find the php.ini file in any of the common folders, I had to go to this location “/etc/php5/cli/php.ini”, eventually I found the uploadmaxfile_size and changed it to 10M. Now I tried restarting with multiple commands, and I keep on getting the “AH00558” error. I then found a fix for that error, but I’m still getting the same AH00558 error.

You still got a 2mb limit because you edited the php configuration for the CLI PHP. If you are running the apache webserver you need to edit /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini
Also check the max postsize.

Allright try to execute

apt-get remove php5*
apt-get install php5

And check again, please give a result when done.

I solved this by just adding the two command lines into a new php.ini file in my apache5 folder
