We can increase maximum upload file size for WordPress media uploads in 3 different ways.
- .htaccess way
- PHP.INI file method
- Theme’s Functions.php File
For .htaccess way, add following code,
php_value upload_max_filesize 1024M php_value post_max_size 1024M php_value max_execution_time 1000 php_value max_input_time 1000
for PHP.INI file method, add following code,
upload_max_filesize = 1024M post_max_size = 1024M max_execution_time = 1000
for Theme’s Functions.php File, add following code,
@ini_set( ‘upload_max_size’ , ’1024M’ ); @ini_set( ‘post_max_size’, ’1024M’); @ini_set( ‘max_execution_time’, ’1000′ );
