  1. open file /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini
  2. find upload_max_filesize = 2M (default is set to 2MB)
  3. Change 2M to 16M
  4. Save (press control O to write out)
  5. exit (press control x to exit)
  6. restart Apache by using command (sudo service apache2 restart) Done!

Try uploading again :)

Connect to your root via the following: For example, if the server IP address was 123.234.123.234, the command would look like this: ssh root@123.234.123.234.

Enter your password and hit enter. Paste the following command. vim /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini Then hit enter. Type /upload_max_filesize Then hit enter. Use your cursor to hover over the 2M and change 16M. You can use the delete button to remove additional characters if you make a mistake. exit (press control x to exit) restart Apache by using command (sudo service apache2 restart) Done! Try uploading again :)

This option is for the date base of upload in PHPMyAdmin, but I want to know how to increase the upload of Media in WordPress (php.ini the wp-admin folder) because I have not found. Uploading default WordPress is 20M. Can anyone help? Thank you.

I think you need to edit the php.ini file and change the default value you need to find the pathof the file and nano it or vi as a su here’s a link that may help you http://wptheming.com/2009/07/upload_max_filesize/

in my case I am using WHM and I am able to edit the php settingsfrom within the WHM control panel.

If you restart apache after making the change: sudo service apache2 restart

It takes affect right away!

Right, you need to edit the file <code>/etc/php5/apache2/php.ini</code> and increase the setting for <code>upload_max_filesize</code> By default, it is only 2MB <br> <br>See: http://php.net/upload-max-filesize <br>

Find all php.ini files: root@server:~# find / -name php.ini /usr/local/vesta/php/lib/php.ini /usr/local/vesta/src/rpm/conf/php.ini /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini /etc/php5/cli/php.ini /etc/php5/cgi/php.ini

Edit the files: root@server:~# nano /usr/local/vesta/php/lib/php.ini

Use crtl + w for search for upload

Change this line: upload_max_filesize = 2M To: upload_max_filesize = 10M

Repeat for all files:

root@server:~# nano /usr/local/vesta/src/rpm/conf/php.ini root@server:~# nano /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini (this is probably the one you should change) root@server:~# nano /etc/php5/cli/php.ini root@server:~# nano /etc/php5/cgi/php.ini

Restart apache: root@server:~# sudo service apache2 restart

Thank YOU geoff45e7908988 this is the solution I needed…

I have done it!

For increasing your file limit the easiest way is by loging into WHM and click on the Manu links at the left side called " Service configurations" Then click on “PHP Configuration Editor” then browse down to the line that has this: “Core … upload_max_filesize …The maximum size of an uploaded file.” change the value from 2M to whatever you wanted, better keep to a minimum as per your requirement, I added mine to 6M and now I can upload up to 6MB.

Have fun! Harib Shaqsy haribshaqsy. com

First if you dont find php.ini file create one and insert upload_max_filesize=128M post_max_size=129M max_execution_time=300 and save the file

Next specify the path of php.ini file inside .htaccess file using suPHP_ConfigPath/home/username/public_html where username should be the username mentioned in cpanel. You can refer http://www.vinaypn.com/how-to-fix-maximum-upload-size-exceeded-error-in-wordpress-running-on-shared-hosting/
