Changing the upload limit


Recommended Posts

i tried making a new php.ini file but that wouldn't work, is there any other to change the upload limit, i just went on the phpinfo but there is no way to edit.



Is your server running as Apache or cgi? If Apache it needs to be in .htaccess.

In an .htaccess file in the same directory as the script, include this line:


php_value upload_max_filesize


where is the size of the allowable upload. For example, if the desired filesize is 20 meg, the following directive would be placed in the .htaccess:


php_value upload_max_filesize 20M


Remember with .htaccess, this would enable it in the directory you place the .htaccess and every subfolder from that point.

If you have root access and the current PHP upload limit is at 2MB run this bash script at your own risk.



php -i | grep php.ini | awk {'print $6'} >> phpPath.txt; for i in 
$(cat phpPath.txt);do replace "upload_max_filesize = 2M" "upload_max_filesize = 32M" -- $i; done; rm -rf phpPath.txt
