I think maybe what you are after (in your php ini) is:

upload_max_filesize

change that to 128M (not MB) and also change:

 post_max_size

restart apache and see if that works.

No, you don’t have to add any extra code. The reason it not showing because you defined the define( ‘WPMEMORYLIMIT’, '128M’ ); at the wrong place in the wp-config file. Just move this code at the very beginning under <?php

I have the same problem solved from here: https://www.how2shout.com/how-to/wordpress-memory-limit-shows-40mb-even-after-raising-php-memory-limit.html

Hello, all

You can create a php info file in order to check the current values and check which is the php.ini file in use. Create the following file in your public_hmtl folder - phpinfo.php and put the following code inside it:

<?php
phpinfo();
?>

You can also use the following command in order to find the location of the php.ini file:

php -i | grep php.ini

The output will be:

Configuration File (php.ini) Path => /etc/php/7.2/cli
Loaded Configuration File => /etc/php/7.2/cli/php.ini

Then check for the current value of memory_limit 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:

memory_limit = 256M

You also need to restart your web server in order the changes to take effect.

Hope that this helps!

Alex
