Hello mirkogrewing,

It is not recommended to set the upload_max_filesize to anything larger than 2GB. File uploads this large over http can be highly unreliable. It is recommended to use FTP for transferring large files (typically anything over 1GB)

Hello mirkogrewing!

You can change the following in your php.ini in your public_html folder. Your php.ini will need to be recursive for the subfolders to be effected.

; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
upload_max_filesize = 128M

You can increase it to 512M to allow larger file size uploads. The default is 128M.

Best Regards,
