    Hi
    I am trying to install a new plugin I downloaded by using the or upload a plugin in .zip format via this page. but when I try to install a 3MB plugin I keep getting The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini

    been googling this ... just wasted an hour on techniques posted to fix it... none work.... very close to scrubbing this instal and reverting to Joomla.... hope someone can change my mind because I'm not pleased with solutions which dont work with latest build...

    ok...

    I am running wamp and have modified the php ini file for both settings of max file to 200M and tried 200, restarted wamp
    have also tried another suggestion of copying php.ini to wp-admin folder... restarted wamp ... still the same

    <sigh> why is this SOOOOO hard?????

    anyone please??????????????

    If this is a localhost install, why are you bothering with FTP when you can just drop things into the relevant folders?

    Thanks for your comment...

    two reasons

    1. Because the functionality should work and I would like to understand what the issue is, how to fix it if I encounter it elsewhere where I AM using ftp

    2. because I do not know what the relevant folders are … do I simply unzip this into wp-content/plugin and hope it works??? if I do this on Linux do I need to worry about the file attributes?

    1. That's not really a WordPress issue. It's a server problem. Try posting a dedicated forum for your server software.

    2. For plugins: wp-content/plugins
    For themes: wp-content/themes

    do I simply unzip this into wp-content/plugin and hope it works???

    Yes

    if I do this on Linux do I need to worry about the file attributes?

    No.
