I am trying to get a new WP installation running on my PC and I having problems with getting pictures >2MB into my posts.
I tried a suggestion made in other posts by creating a php.ini file containing:
memory_limit = 100M
upload_max_filesize = 192M
post_max_size = 100M
file_uploads = On
I had this php.ini file in the wp-admin folder and now in the root but the new Insert Media panel still shows
"Maximum upload file size: 2MB"
Obviously something is wrong. I'd appreciate help in getting this fixed.
