Support » Fixing WordPress » uploading themes after update to 3.5.1

  • Resolved seancon1


    earlier today i was able to upload a 2mb theme file (WP 3.5) after updating to 3.5.1 now i am getting “The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.” after updating to 3.5.1 and i try to upload an updated version of the same theme, same size with a few changes.

    running php 5.3 wordpress 3.5.1 and the upload limit is set to 250MB
    checked with the host and nothing has changed.

    A quick check, on your Add New Media page (/wp-admin/media-new.php), what is the upload limit mentioned there?

    250MB, frankly, surprises me for upload_max as really high.

    My thought is that there was an override for upload_max_filesize somewhere (the original theme that was present before the first upload, in an .htaccess file, etc) that was lost.

    Some suggestions on increasing the upload_max_filesize:

    this got me thinking, when i look at the php configuration in cpanel upload_max_filesize is definitely says 250mb (i thought this was high too)

    so i created a phpinfo() page and it says it is only 2mb and the media upload page also says 2mb, nothing added to the .htaccess for file size either. so i am back to my host.

    thanks for stirring my brain to check further.


    there was an issue with the upgrade to php 5.3 which happened just before i did the upgrade.
