I can't upload a theme in wordpress. Increasing the upload_max_file_size hasn't helped.

Pardon this newbie question as I am a strong tech guy, but I’m not familiar with this Linux (I’m working on it).

I performed the one click install of WordPress on Ubuntu 16.04.

Went through tutorial and now I can get into WordPress.

However, I can’t upload a theme. Here is what I have done.

  1. Increased the max upload file size to 100M. This was located in /etc/php/7.0/apache2/php.ini

  2. restarted apache2 services

What am I missing?
