HTTP error on media upload wordpress site



I’m getting an HTTP error on my website when I try to upload files that are bigger than 1 MB. How do I fix this?


Hi Abdul,

Thank you for contacting us! The default size limit for uploading files is 64MB, which may be far too small for your needs. If you need to raise this limit, you must create a phprc file. We have a guide here

and if you need further support you can submit a ticket 24/7 or reach our lIve Chat team 5am til 10pm PDT daily here

When ever I am uploading images on my site
I am getting http error. Should I migrate to Dreamhost to solve this problem? currently I am using DO


are these 64MB limit for the size of one file or for all files i’d like to upload??since for the site i’m planning to upload not so many files but each of them are of size 20MB and more


You try to reload the site before starting to upload something. My Website


Is the problem solved yet or not


This error can be caused by a few different factors, if you are experiencing this on your own site we suggest that you contact support directly so that we may look into the affected sites.




firstly you need to tell us what type of file you are downloading. By default wordpress doesn’t support all file types. like for uploading .xml , .apk you have to edit the .php files. I can provide with exact code to copy-paste if you tell me about your upload in detail. I have made some changes to my site CotoMovies and Appflix so that i can upload other type of files. For me it is basically .apk files. Might be different for you.
Hope this helps shed some light on the topic.


You must contact support to increase the limit of uploading size on your site. Or contact any website design solutions providers.

I face the same problem on my site . How to fix?


i faced same issue
fouad whatsapp but i change the File upload size php.ini size = 1 MB to Size=10MB and its work for me perfactly.


I need help resolving the HTTP error when uploading large files. Someone else created my site with an upload size limit of 64Mb. I am trying to upload audio files that are sometimes larger than 64Mb. I added a plug-in (Upload Max File Size) to change my max upload size to 128Mb. I changed memory_limit in PHP.ini to 256M. I change max_execution_time in PHP.ini to 300. I set memory_limit in wp-config to 256M. I changed memory_limit in .htaccess to 256M. I tried adding the code to .htaccess to force it to use the GD Library instead of Imagick. It didn’t work, so I remove that code and then added the line to limit Imagick to 1 thread. In spite of all of these changes, I still get the HTTP error when loading a file larger than 64Mb.
Any more ideas?
