Most likely you are using PHP-FPM with Nginx, so you would edit the php.ini file <br> <br>e.g. To change max file upload size to 100MB <br> <br>Edit… <br>vim /etc/php5/fpm/php.ini <br> <br>Set… <br>upload_max_filesize = 100M <br>post_max_size = 100M <br> <br>Also add following line to http{…} block in nginx config: <br> <br>http { <br> #… <br> client_max_body_size 100m; <br> #… <br>} <br> <br>Source:

first run this command sudo find / -name “php.ini” then after finding the file run this command nano /etc/php/7.0/fpm/php.ini after you are in the file click Ctrl w to search for upload_max_filesize . After setting the value to 100M save it clicking Ctrl O and then click Ctrl X.

I think this might be useful for all of you. First run

locate php.ini

So that you can find all php.ini files no matter what you are using. Then make all changes as needed
