Sometimes, you need to upload a large file to your site, and the default 8mb limit in WordPress isn’t enough. I attempted to change my limit directly on my server, then in the .htaccess file and then in wp-config.php but neither change worked for me. Then I came across this little snippet byWord Impressed which actually worked and allowed me to increase my max upload file size limit.
All you need to do is create a
php.ini file and upload it into your
/wp-admin folder. Then add the following:
|memory_limit = 32M
upload_max_filesize = 32M
post_max_size = 32M
file_uploads = On
You can change
32m to whatever max file size you want.
