Support » Fixing WordPress » Space Upgrade Problem

  • Hello,

    I want to put mp3s on my website, and I realize I need the Space Upgrade for this. However, since my site only uses WordPress software and is not hosted by WordPress, there is no upgrade tab in my dashboard. How to I otherwise buy the upgrade or put mp3s on my site? Is this something I should bring up with my host? Thank you.

  • If you need more disk space, you have to buy it from your host. Are you sure you need more space?

    BTW the Audio Player plugin is nice for putting MP3s on your site.

    I have the Audio Player plugin installed and everything, but the problem is that it says I can only upload 2 MB files. I researched this and so far all I’ve gotten is that I need the upgrade from WordPress in order to use it. Since I can’t get the upgrade because my site is not hosted by WordPress, and instead just uses the software, I need to find some other way to put the MP3s on there.

    I guess I’ll go to my host now and see what’s up, thank you though.

    The 2MB upload limit sounds more like a PHP upload limit than a WordPress issue. Your hosting provider may be able to change the PHP settings for your host to allow you to upload larger files over PHP, otherwise you would need to upload them manually.

    There are 3 relevant ini settings –


    I always upload them via FTP. The default for that plugin is to put the audio files in yourwpfolder/audio, which you can’t do via Media Library.

    I am having the same issue. I can only upload 2 MB.

    Can you tell me how I could upload MP3s manually so they could play thru my Audio Player?


    1. Increase the memory limit setting in php.ini (e.g. memory_limit = 64M ;). Check with your host to see if they allow this.
    2. Increase the memory limit via .htaccess (e.g. php_value memory_limit 64M). Check with your host to see if they allow this.
    3. Increase the memory limit via wp-config.php (e.g. define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’64M’);)

    If you want to upload something manually your hosting interface may provide you with some tools to do so, or you can use an FTP program to upload the files. Here’s a free one:
