How to change the maximum upload file size in LiteSpeed/WordPress
I have found many solutions for this, but I’m looking for the simplest, least-intrusive way to change the maximum upload file size for WordPress. Specifically, for a droplet created with the LiteSpeed/WordPress image from DO’s marketplace.
I attempted to add the line
php_value upload_max_filesize 64M to the bottom of the
.htaccess file using LiteSpeed’s built-in “Edit .htaccess” menu command. It did nothing.
Also, I had to do a
sudo reboot from ssh because I cannot figure out how to reboot just the web server, either.
sudo service nginx restartdoesn’t work.
sudo service httpd restartdoesn’t work.
sudo service apache restartdoesn’t work.
sudo service apache2 restartdoesn’t work.
They all give me
Unit <servicename>.service not found.
Finding and editing the correct
php.ini file, then force-rebooting the entire droplet seems a bit harsh to me, as though there should be a more elegant way.
