I couldn't upload a zip file from plugins


I couldn't upload the zip file in the plugin section. How do I increase the upload size? Is there?

    Greetings Brad,

    Thank you for this great question, it is greatly appreciated.

    The first things we need to do is find out where the size is limited and then we will know what to do.

    Yes there is a size setting in WordPress, but the hosting size setting takes precedence.

    So the first thing to do is to download, extract, and FTP to the root of your domain the phpinfo.php file. Then we want to call it up in your browser using something like http://yourdomain.com/phpinfo.php

    Now we want to find the line that says and the indicated values:




    The post_max_size value control the maximum allowable upload size and the max_execution_time dictates the time allowed to do so.

    This is how they relate to each other.

    Please advise as to these values and we can move forward from there.

    Cheers, Joe
