File Size Upload Restrictions

File Size Upload Restrictions was created by CherylR
How can I change the file upload size restriction on my WP site? It currently only allows me to upload files under 128MB.

Thanks.

Hi Valentin,

I just completed this tutorial, but am still having the issue with uploading bigger files.

1. What is the size of the file you're trying to upload? Is a plugin maybe?
2. Do you still see the exact same message about the filesize

Yes, the 128MB message. I've tried to upload several files larger than the maximum size allowed and am having no luck.

If is a plugin, upload it via cPanel inside wp-content/plugins/ folder and decompress it after the upload finished.
cPanel has an option through File Manager. Do the right click over the file > "Extract"

It's not a plugin. It's an image.

Hi Cheryl,

The image is over 128 MB? Wow, that's one big image. Are you sure it shouln't be optimized?

As to increasing the size, please contact your host's support as it varies from host to host. They'll be able to quickly change it for you.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any questions and we'll be glad to answer.

Kind regards,
Nick

HiNick,

At this point, I don't think the issue may be related to the size. I successfully uploaded smaller ones but a few others wouldn't.

Hi Cheryl,
A single file with that size is not usual.

Images are around a few hundred KB to 1 MB as maximum.
