Support » Fixing WordPress » Maximum image upload size 2MB?

  • I am trying to upload images and I am getting an error message that 2MB is the max size. I have tried several different themes to no avail. I also installed the NextGen Gallery plug-in and still can’t upload images over 2MB. Is it true that WP can’t take images over 2MB? If so, how are you supposed to create a photoblog in WP if there’s a size limit? What other platform can I use besides WP to create a photoblog?

    You need to change the max upload line in your php.ini file. Find the line

    upload_max_filesize = 2M

    and change it to 8M or so.

    If you don’t have access to php.ini, ask your web host.

    Thanks. That solved the problem.

    So I also adjusted the php.ini but I keep getting this error.

    (Error : Exceed Memory limit. Require : 56.47 MByte) – but the photos are under the new maximum size, they are all 2mb each.




    Hopefully, you sorted that but if not that’s PHP running out of RAM while processing the image. Nothing to do with max upload size. Set this in php.ini

    memory_limit = 128M
