Changing Video Upload Space

  • Hey guys,
    I am working on a site that requires large video files (between 100 and 200mb), and i was wondering how i can modify the upload space so that i am not restricted with 2mb. I know its in the php.ini file but when i edited that nothing happened.

  • To spell out what can be said in other, more complicated ways: it is a setting on your hosts server that you are able to change (hopefully). I created a text document called ‘php.ini’ with the following lines:

    upload_max_filesize = 30M
    post_max_size = 40M

    Which would give a maximum size of 30 MB, if my guess is correct. The way I heard it, post_max_size should always be a bit larger than upload_max_filesize, although how much larger is ambiguous.

    After I saved that file, I uploaded it to my wp-admin directory—this is important, since it’s the directory that matters here. Replace my MB values with your own, and this should be the solution you want.
