1.Wash .htaccess update (Linux Hosting Only)

If your web server is using Apache and PHP is set up as an Apache module, you can add a few lines of code to your WordPress .htaccess file to increase the upload max file size size in WordPress. To access the htaccess file, connect to your server via FTP client and WordPress Go to the folder where it is installed. Open the .htaccess file in a code editor or Notepad and add the following lines.

php_value upload_max_filesize 64M
php_value post_max_size 128M

@ ini_set ( ‘upload_max_size’ , ’64M’ ) ;

@ ini_set ( ‘post_max_size’ , ’64M’ ) ;

@ ini_set ( ‘max_execution_time’ , ‘300’ ) ;

3.php.ini Option
This is a default file used to configure any application running on PHP. This file contains the necessary parameters for file timeout, upload size and resource limits. Access your WordPress root directory using SSH or FTP and search for a php.ini file. In some cases, if this file is not visible to other options, you can create a new file instead. Open any text editor and enter the code below or create a new file. Copy the code below and save it as php.ini.

upload_max_filesize = 25M 
post_max_size = 13M 
memory_limit = 15M

If you are using WordPress multisite, the upload size can be increased in the settings. This increase depends on your server settings. If your server is set to 20MB, you cannot increase the WordPress upload size to 25MB. However, if your server is set to 20MB, if your network setting is set to 15MB, you might be able to fix the problem by increasing the upload size to 20MB.

5.wp-config.php File

Another way to increase the maximum file size (upload max file size) in WordPress is to define the size parameter in the wp-config.php file. To do this, access your WordPress root directory using SSH or FTP and find a wp-config.php file.

@ ini_set ( 'upload_max_size' , '20M' ) ;
