Where and How to Change Upload_Max_Filesize

Postby Clozdr » 03. July 2015 01:05

Hello Apache Friends:
I am a novice, and know nothing about coding, etc. I set up a local server to develop a new wordpress website using XAMPP. I was successful in loading wordpress, but when I tried to load my Elegant Theme - Divi, I received the error message of upload_max_filesize. After hours researching, I found that the default is 2M and help suggestions are to increase the maximum upload filesize to 200M. Sounds simple, but not for me.

I have no idea where to go or how to do this. I need step by step directions and hope that an Apache Friend will help me and other future novices learn exactly how to do this. Thanks

Edit php.ini and search for upload_max_filesize.

Thanks, but I don't know how or where to go to edit php.ini? I am truly uninformed and afraid of doing something wrong in places that I have never visited before.

To resolve this problem, locate php.ini in Xampp - you can find it at C:\xampp\php. Open the php.ini file, search for “upload_max_filesize” and replace "2M” with a higher value, say “50M”.

You will need to restart Apache for the change to take effect.

Sorry about being such a "No Nothing" Maybe I am still not in the right place or don't even know how to change an item in this directory script. I am highlighting the number 2M but I am unable to change the value. What am I missing here?

Thanks for the help.

You need to open the php.ini with a plain text exitor (like Windows notepad).
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

THANK YOU SO MUCH. Yes, I am really a rookie. Did not even what a plain text editor was. But with your help, I figured it out and got my program installed. WOW. Now I can go on to other things that I don't know how to do. I really appreciate the help.
