Hi there @InternetGod1,

Thank you for sharing this solution here with the community!


@InternetGod1 Thank you for sharing this.

After executing this command for PHP7.4 on Ubuntu 20.04, I changed the sizes, the execution time, and restarted the server.

However, my Wordpress Site Health Info still indicates that the Upload max filesize is 2M.

Am I missing something?
