How do I increase my Wordpress upload size?
When I try uploading a file to Wordpress, it says my file is too big. How do I fix this?
This is a setting within Wordpress that is set to a default that typically ranges from 2MB to 5MB. There are a couple of ways to change this. You can use the
functions.php file and change
upload_max_size to a larger value. You can also change this in
php.ini by adding the following lines of code or changing the values already there:
upload_max_filesize = 64M post_max_size = 64M max_execution_time = 300
Another location to change is the
.htaccess file. You would use the same code block above in
.htaccess. I do want to note that
.htaccess will override other configurations, so you need to ensure consistency in all files. If you'd prefer to use your Wordpress admin site, you can go to Settings --> Upload Settings --> Max Upload File Size.
