If after changing
Settings > Max upload file size in your blog network settings, you still see old value for maxium upload file size, then you may be in need of changing your PHP parser configuration. You can do this at least in two ways and this article should help you in this task.
Approach number one comes from this blog article. Create your own
php.ini file, set new values inside:
upload_max_filesize = 32M
post_max_size = 32M
and upload it to the same folder, that keeps your WordPress installation files or to root folder of your hosting.
If this does not work, because newly set values are ignored or you don’t have access to FTP / abillity to change
php.ini file, then simply look around your hosting’s settings or configuration panel.
My hosting uses cPanel, so I had to:
- Go to
Softwaresection on main screen and click on
Select PHP Versionicon.
- Change version of PHP from
5.4 (native)(can’t change invidual settings in this version) to just
Set as current.
Switch To PHP Options.
- Click on
32Mvalue set for
upload_max_filesizesettings and change it to
- Click on
Saveto confirm changes.
(there are reports, that you can change this similarily in Plesk)
Media > Add New of any of my blogs I could finally see
Maximum upload file size: 64 MB.
