Thanks, I contacted my host and upgraded my server. FYI, I run through http://diablovalleyhosting.com, which is a reseller of Go-Daddy.
So if anyone else is running on Lynx through Diablo Valley Hosting or Godaddy, here is the solution.
1-Make sure your server is upgraded to the latest edition, I had to bump from 1.0 to 2.0 in my hosting control panel.
2-download a php.ini file,
details about the file our at:
location of a php.ini file:
4-change the name of the downloaded file to "php.ini"
3-Make changes to the file upload and posting parameters in the PHP.ini file (8m and 2m represent megs):
post_max_size = 8M
upload_max_filesize = 2M
4-upload the new php.ini file to your root directory on your website
And thats it.
Thanks for the lead WP community!!!
All the Best,
BTY- there was no need for Telnet or SSH
