Increase Upload Max Filesize

Increases your website's upload max filesize limit on your server by adding rules to php5.ini or php.ini

New since version 1.0.2: set custom limits.

Increases your website's upload max filesize limit on your server by adding rules to php5.ini. If a php5.ini file does not exist on your server in the root of your website, one will be created. If your server uses php.ini instead, go to Tools -> Upload Max Filesize to run it with php.ini.

Super Easy To Use

This is what the plugin does automatically when you install it (it works immediately upon activation):

  1. If your upload max filesize ( upload_max_filesize ) is less than 32 MB, it will be set to 32M.

  2. If your post max size ( post_max_size ) is less than 33 MB, then it will be set to 33M.

That is all. No other will rules will be changed.

If you want something other than the default limits that are listed above:

For custom options, go to Tools -> Upload Max Filesize. From that page, you can choose custom settings and run the plugin again.


It will only run once, upon plugin activation, or upon clicking the blue button in Tools -> Upload Max Filesize. Thus, if you later make any manual changes to decrease your upload_max_filesize, the plugin will not increase it again. You must either run the plugin again from Tools -> Upload Max Filesize, or de-activate and reactivate the plugin, to make it run again.

Will This Work For You?

This plugin will work with most web hosts that recognize either a php5.ini or php.ini file. It's not going to work with all hosting companies, but it will work with most of them (including BlueHost, DreamHost, HostGator, and GoDaddy).
