Media upload maximum file size

wordpress

#1

7mb limit is ridiculous.

Can someone please point me to step by step directions that will enable me to raise the limit imposed by dreamhost on media uploads in wordpress 3.51?

Thanks, but those directions are remarkably confusing and incomplete. I also note a number of people reporting who tried the directions and generated other kinds of errors in the process.

7MB post_max_size is 3.5 times larger than the PHP default.

http://wiki.dreamhost.com/PHP.ini#phprc is the section you want.

In that file, you would put this:

upload_max_filesize = 20M;
post_max_size = 20M;
