Support » Fixing WordPress » Where else do I change 1500 KB limit in Theme Uploading in 3.3

  • I was uploading a theme of 1557k and got the message that there was a limit to the uploads of 1500k. I came here and search and found the posts recommending I ask my site space provider to have the php.ini upload limits to be changed up to 32M. I found then it was already set to 64M.

    Knowing that the PHP setting were not the problem, I then scanned the code for a hard coded limit number (1500), which I found in three files.

    1. schema.php had a line … fileupload_maxk’ => 1500
    2. ms.php and msfunctions.php had lines … (‘fileupload_maxk, 1500)

    I replaced the 1500 in each with 3000, save the files and retried. I STILL get the following error: “This file is too big. Files must be less than 1500 KB in size. Back”, even though I can find no more instances of the number 1500 in any file of the wordpress installed in my section on that server.

    So can ANYONE tell me why I get a limit error of 1500 still?

    If this were html, I wold think there there is a cached version of the file loading, but it is php, and I have erased the browser cache..

  • Go to cPanel, select phpMyAdmin and select your database, button at the top in the left. After you select the database at the appear list click to wp_sitemeta and now select edit fileupload_maxk and modified the 1500 limit and press Go. Thats it.

    THANK YOU rotrif. I too had this issue. This absolutely worked. I appreciate your post!

    There is a setting in the WordPress admin panel “maximum upload file size”. This applies to theme files uploaded via “Theme / Upload”.

    In WPMU it is under the main “Network Admin / Network Settings” page.

    You can edit this from the web interface via an admin login WITHOUT having to get into the MySQL interface directly via phpMyAdmin or command line.


    Thanks a bunch as I had this issue as well and it worked great. Thanks for posting.
