Support » Fixing WordPress » Uploading File size wont update

  • Hello Forum.

    I’m having an issue with uploading files. Im getting error message that the limit is 128MB. Ive contacted my host, and I saw from the PHP.info folder that the limit is set to 1GB from his part of the cpanel. But wordpress wont update this. I also tried to do it myself via root folder creating a php5.ini folder entering this code:

    upload_max_filesize = 200M

    post_max_size = 200M

    But still nothing happens.

    Any suggestions please?

  • Hi,

    Try these ones:

    1. in you theme functions.php add:
    @ini_set( ‘upload_max_size’ , ‘200M’ );
    @ini_set( ‘post_max_size’, ‘200M’);
    @ini_set( ‘max_execution_time’, ‘300’ );

    2. in php.ini:
    upload_max_filesize = 200M
    post_max_size = 200M
    max_execution_time = 300

    3. in .htaccess file:
    php_value upload_max_filesize 200M
    php_value post_max_size 200M
    php_value max_execution_time 300
    php_value max_input_time 300

    Let me know if the issue will not go away.

    Hello thank you for the reply.

    I tried method 1 & 2 and did not work.

    I will try method 3 but I need to ask a question. In my htaccess file, there are all # everywhere. do I need to place this 3rd code in some particular line? or at the beginning of the file?

    Hi,

    You should place it inside ‘ifmodule’ section, something like this:
    <IfModule mod_php5.c>
    php_value post_max_size 10M
    php_value upload_max_filesize 40M
    php_value memory_limit 500M
    </IfModule>

    I tried the 3rd method and my site went all blank, none of these methods worked. I pasted the original text back into place of the .htaccess file, and my website functioned again.

    What else is left I can try?

    But I’d like to know, what can my Web host company do from their end?

    I didnt use the: <IfModule mod_php5.c> </IfModule>

    I just inserted at the bottom of the page:

    php_value post_max_size 10M
    php_value upload_max_filesize 40M
    php_value memory_limit 500M

    Would it makes a difference?

    Is this legit, my web host company said:

    There is nothing we can do about it. From our end we have the php set to maximum uploads 1GB for your site. So it’s a WP issue you have to sort out.

    Let’s check current limits to be sure was it applied or not after your modifications.
    Please create phpinfo.php file that contains
    <?php phpinfo(); ?>
    inside.
    Place the file to the /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/
    Or to the httpdocs/ if you have access just to your webspace.
    And access it via browser as http://yourWebsiteName.domainName/phpinfo.php

    It will show various parameters, but you need to check:
    memory_limit
    post_max_size
    upload_max_filesize
    And publish the value here.

    btw, did you paste exactly this text into .htaccess:

    php_value post_max_size 10M
    php_value upload_max_filesize 40M
    php_value memory_limit 500M

    or changed it and increased values up to 200M at least? Just in case 😉

    I changed the limits to 200! 🙂

    Ill give the other method with the <?php phpinfo(); ?> a go now, and see how it works, Ill keep you posted.

    regarding the <?php phpinfo(); ?> I was all ready shown by my host company which showed me the value, but ill post here too, just in case they missed something.

    you will see the: upload_max_filesize 1G
