WP Maximum Upload File Size


Increase upload file size limit to any value with one click.
Plugin automatically detects upload limits set by WordPress and by the server / hosting provider, and displays them.

Access plugin’s settings from the main WP admin menu.


The usual, automatic way;

  1. Open WordPress admin, go to Plugins, click Add New
  2. Enter “increase maximum upload” in search and hit Enter
  3. Plugin will show up as the first on the list, click “Install Now”
  4. Activate & open plugin’s settings page located in the main admin menu

Or if needed, install manually;

  1. Download the plugin.
  2. Unzip it and upload to /wp-content/plugins/
  3. Open WordPress admin – Plugins and click “Activate” next to the plugin
  4. Activate & open plugin’s settings page located in the main admin menu


Does this plugin work with all servers and hosting providers?

Yes, it works with all servers. But, please know that server adjusted limits can’t be changed from a WordPress plugin. If the server set limit is 16MB you can’t increase it to 128MB via WordPress. You have to email your hosting provider and ask them to increase the limit. Install the plugin and it’ll tell you what the limits are and what to do.

Thank you for this plugin. Well one downside to this plugin is that you can increase the upload size to max 1 GB. If anyone wants to increase it to more than that, manually update the wp-upload-max-file-size.php file. Replace code with this line: $upload_sizes = array(16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024); to $upload_sizes = array(16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048 or any number);
