I'm working in Wordpress and I want to increase the file upload limit for my website. The files sent by clients are typically large files that exceed the 128M limit and I want to change it.

I have changed my php.ini file, however, the changes are not being recognized. How do I fix this? Can I?

Hi nathanjmayes,

I'm sorry you're having trouble updating your local PHP settings. By default, the php.ini only affects the files in the folder that it is placed in, and not other folders on the account. Updating your php.ini file in public_html/php.ini will not affect subfolders of public_html such as public_html/

To correct this problem, you can either:

1. Copy your public_html/php.ini file to each folder
2. Make your php.ini file recursive by adding the following to the top of your public_html/.htaccess file (replace userna5 with your actual cPanel user name):

suPHP_ConfigPath /home/userna5/public_html

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.
