Hi there @infofreelenstudio,

You would need to increase the PHP post_max_size and upload_max_filesize via your php.ini file.

I could suggest following the steps from this tutorial here on how to adjust your PHP settings:


by Jon Schwenn
PHP is a server side scripting language used by many popular CMS and blog platforms like WordPress and Drupal. It is also part of the popular LAMP and LEMP stacks. Updating the PHP configuration settings is a common task when setting up a PHP-based website. This guide will show how to view the current PHP configuration settings of your web server and how to make updates to the PHP settings.


What you can do is to create an info.php file and then check the values. You can create a file named info.php (the name doesn’t really matter) and put the following content in the file:


Then check for the current value of upload_max_filesize and post_max_size you can also check which is the configuration file - php.ini that is currently used and apply the changes there (if the site using the global php.ini file and you change the values for these settings this will make the changes globally for all sites). Ideally you would like to have the following values:

upload_max_filesize = 64M
post_max_size = 64M

Hope this helps!
