    I am a pretty computer savy guy, but I can't for the life of me, no matter how many tutorials I read online, figue out how to expand the 2mb limit that my Bluehost account has set. I can't import my wordpress blog to my new .org because my export file is 3.75 mb.

    I've read online about php's and ftps but its all over my head. Could anyone please help me lay it down in layments terms or perhaps get me on messenger and walk me through it? Any help would be appreciated.

    (I am using version 2.9.2.)

    find out if your host allows you to raise the limit first off....

    I created a file in my root called php.ini with this in itt:
    rg_emulation = off
    allow_url_fopen = on
    memory_limit = 512M
    post_max_size = 256M
    file_uploads = On
    max_execution_time = 300000
    max_input_time = 300000
    upload_max_filesize = 256M

    you probably don't need all that (I forget what half of it was for)
    But the stuff to do with file size, max size is what to add

    I know bluehost allows it, and from the tutorials I seen online I know im supposed to do what you said btu I don't know where in the cpanel I can input files into my root. I'm more of a visual learner and it would be great if I found a youtube video explaining it or something, im so lost :(

    I dunno how your host works either. Where are your WP files? How would you manipulate them? Upload, download, etc?

    Do they have some sort of file manager? Or maybe you have to use ftp?

    The file can be made in a plain text editor, like notepad....then saved as php.ini and then uploaded/ftp'd to the root/public_html level on your host

    Does your host have a help area? Like godaddy (my host) has a help section on how to upload files to your server
