Support » Fixing WordPress » This file exceeds the maximum upload size for this site.

  • Hello!

    I contacted Bluehost about the error message I received and they walked me through changing the file size limit for uploads and posts and then they verified that they change had taken effect immediately. However, I am still getting the same error “This file exceeds the maximum upload size for this site.”

    Any ideas? Bluehost says that they’ve changed it correctly and that I now need to post on the forum. 🙂

    Thank you!!

  • Check the following: Use the PHP Config icon in your cPanel to make sure that single php.ini is set.

    Then, if your installation isn’t directly in public_html, check the .htaccess file in the location where your WordPress installation is at. Make sure that it doesn’t have any other php lines overriding the single php.ini setting.

    If this is a multisite installation, you may also need to change that limit directly in your global admin panel.

    Thank you for your reply! I’ve checked everything and the php.ini is set to single and the installation is in public_html. I changed the code for the php.ini and the php.ini.default. Still no change on the wordpress side.

    This was the code in teh .htaccess file:
    # Use PHP5 Single php.ini as default
    AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5s .php

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    I’m not proficient in code, so I’m not sure what it says. 🙂

    If you haea ny other ideas, I’d love to hear them!

    Thank you!

    What is your domain name?
    Is this the primary domain name on your account, or a sub, or addon, domain name?
    Is this a multisite setup, or just a standard WordPress?

    Hi again!

    I don’t even know how to answer that question. 🙂 As far as I know, it’s just a standard WP setup.
