How to increase your Max Upload file size for WordPress

This article provides you with information on how to update your PHP resources for WordPress.

 

There are 2 ways that you can choose to increase the maximum upload file size in WordPress.

 

1. Update .htaccess file

php_value upload_max_filesize 128M
php_value post_max_size 128M
php_value memory_limit 256M
php_value max_execution_time 300
php_value max_input_time 300

Change the numbers to the values that you need. The max execution time and max input time values are in seconds and might need to be increased further if your internet connection is slow.

2. Update the wp-config.php file

@ini_set( 'upload_max_filesize' , '128M' );
@ini_set( 'post_max_size', '128M');
@ini_set( 'memory_limit', '256M' );
@ini_set( 'max_execution_time', '300' );
@ini_set( 'max_input_time', '300' );
