Support » Networking WordPress » Maximum upload file size: 8MB.

  • Resolved randomblink


    I’m losing my mind…

    I’ve changed, re-created, added new php.ini with a 100M file upload size… I’ve modified my .htaccess… I’ve adjusted the Multisite Settings to allow 1,000,000 KB file uploads… nothing changes that damn upload text on my sites from 8MB?!

    Can someone PLEASE help?! This doesn’t make ANY SENSE…

  • Ok…
    I just went into my NETWORK settings and changed the max upload to BLANK.

    When I went to my site, it said my Maximum File Upload was 0KB…

    I went back and changed the NETWORK settings to 1000 KB.
    It showed 1MB on my site…

    I went back and changed the NETWORK settings to 100000KB.
    It showed 8MB on my site… again!

    How do I get past that 8MB?!?!

    Copied the 100M upload php.ini file to wp-admin… resolved.


    Maybe we could have that upload page have a link on the upload size number so that we could click on it and get to a settings page that shows WHERE that size is being controlled from?


    Move a php.ini file to your wp-admin folder and it will accept the values.

    i can’t believe you finally figured this out. this has been a problem for me for at least a year. what a pain.

    it doeasn’t work for me 🙁

    does anyone have othe solution ?

    Try this :
    Increase the setting values in php.ini (e.g. upload_max_filesize = 64M ; and post_max_size = 64M 😉

    seemed to work for me…

    Spyze, thanks for posting the solution. I had the same issue, and it worked for me.

    I created a soft link in the wp-admin directory to my php.ini file. That solved my problem. (The uploader page reads ’16M’ right now.) WordPress v3.5

    cd wp-admin
    ln -s /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini php.ini

    Note that the location of the actual php.ini will vary with the Linux distro.
