Files too big (3 posts)

    If the limit of the file size is 2MB for WordPress, how can any mp3's be uploaded since rarely are they that small. At least my mp3's. Does anyone else have this problem?

    Yes, it's quite common. two solutions:
    1 use a ftp uploader like filezilla and use url links to your files instead of the media library.
    2 in the file .htaccess next to wp-includes and wp-content etc, add this to the top of the file:
    php_value upload_max_filesize 10M

    your hosting provider also has a say in this and can still block bigger sizes, consult them if this happens.
    Good luck!

    Making a php.ini file will also work with some hosts

    1) paste the following into a text editor:

    upload_max_filesize = 8M
    post_max_size = 8M
    max_execution_time = 12000
    memory_limit = 8M

    2) save it as php.ini (or rename the file after saving).

    3) Upload it to the wp-admin folder on the server.

    Then can try increasing the numbers if it works.
