Ubuntu server, nGinx, Wordpress maximum upload file size


My maximum upload file size on Ubuntu Server, nGinx, Wordpress is 2Mb.

I changed /etc/php5/fpm/php.ini /etc/php5/cli/php.ini

upload_max_filesize = 10M

After that I restarted nginx with sudo service nginx restart

Nothing changed, my maximum upload file size in Wordpress is still 2mb. I’ve literally looked everywhere and I cannot figure out why this is.

If not already specify client_max_body_size 10m; in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf Also it doesn’t seem as though you’ve restarted PHP itself, you can do that with sudo service php-fpm restart

Hope this helps.
