I cant upload files bigger than 2mb in my wordpress under nginx

I modified the php.ini on sudo nano /etc/php5/cgi/php.ini and I even modified the nginx.conf to 96mb trying to allow me to upload files biggers than 2mb, but the server is still giving me this error

The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.

Someone can help me? My server is under LEMP

Finally success! Thanks Jonsjava, the problem was that I didn’t restart the PHP-FPM service.

By the way, in my case was sudo service php5-fpm restart

This is weird, under the command sudo service php-fpm restart

The system says php-fpm: unrecognized service

I also restart the server a few times…nothing happens, still remains the same
