Change Wordpress Upload Max File Size

Published Thursday, April 15, 2010 3:12 PM

So if you are like me you use Wordpress a lot. One of the main things that bothers me about Wordpress is that it doesn't let you upload files larger than 6MB, at least my Wordpress blog wouldn't.  You can change that setting by making a simple text file and putting it into the wp-admin folder.

So to make this file all you have to do is open a simple text program like textedit on Mac or notepad on Windows and type these two lines of code.

upload_max_filesize = 64M;
post_max_size = 32M;

You can put in any value you want I just chose 64 and 32 because they seemed like good numbers. So now you just save the file and name it php.ini the program will ask you if you want to use the ini extension, click use ini and save. Now all that is left to do is upload the file to your server and place it in the "wp-admin" folder, anywhere in the root section of the folder is fine.

Now login to your Wordpress control panel and try and upload something large. It shouldn't give you any problems and upload whatever you want!
