How to increase the

upload_max_filesize limit in cPanel

There are certain scenarios when you may be asked to make changes to your PHP configuration. Specifically, you may be directed to edit a file on your server called php.ini, and to increase the upload_max_filesize limit.

upload_max_filesize is a setting managed through the PHP Options which sets the maximum size of each file that is being uploaded.

While do not allow direct changes to PHP.ini on our servers. However, PHP configuration changes can be made from cPanel by following these steps:


Step 1) Log into cPanel.

Step 4) Here you can locate the upload_max_filesize and click on the value.

A dropdown menu or text input box will appear, allowing you to change the value as required. Check your script, plugin, or theme’s documentation (or an on-screen error message) to find the correct value.
