Support » Fixing WordPress » Max file upload definitive answer needed

  • Resolved David Leeming


    I have looked through various forum postings but still can’t crack this one. Any help appreciated!

    I have installed WP latest version on Ubuntu 10 with latest LAMP installed using apt-get, ona local machine. This server runs on a local network. All works fine. But I need to increase the file upload size. I tried all of the below in vain, it doggedly retains 2M maximum.
    – Looked for php.ini (using locate… it did not exist, only php.ini-production and -development in the /usr/share/php5 folder)
    – Therefore, coped /usr/share/php5/php.ini-production to create php.ini in same folder, and then
    – Changed the variables max file size and max post size to 64M
    – Still no effect, it says 2M max (after restart)

    – Tried adding to /var/www/wordpress/wp-config.php
    define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘64M’);
    – Still no effect

    – Added same line to wp-settings.php
    – Still no effect

    – Created a php.ini file with the exact code below and saved it in
    – still no effect

    post_max_size 64M
    upload_max_filesize = 64M

  • The php.ini file in /etc/php5/apache2 is the one to edit, change those two variables and save and restart, and it works!
