Increase Maximum Upload Size (5 posts)

    The "UPload New Media" in the WP Dashboard shows a maximum upload size of 25MB. How can I increase that?

    I'm using a theme I purchased through themeforrest a year ago.

    Thanks

    Discuss with your webhost, large file uploads can greatly impact server performance and most actually limit it to less than that...If you have a video, try using a third party like youtube or vimeo as you would also be getting a bandwidth usage hit (from host) perhaps...

    Thank you. I can appreciate your concern for "those who" impact server performance by uploading huge files. That said, that is NOT who I am -- nor do I plan to upload huge files.

    I have an audio file that's 30MG. The limit shown for this particular WP site is 25MG. I have another website where the max upload size is 64MB. I do not understand how it is different -- same host.

    So, I'd still like to know how to increase that limit.

    Can anyone help me out with this?

    It's a PHP configuration setting, not a WordPress limitation. Some hosts allow you to change the default with your own configuration file.

    Which is why you need to ask your host.

    OK. It's HostGator. I will contact them. Thank you.
