Upload Limit Exceeded

If you see this message in WordPress or another application, it means the upload limit set in your PHP settings isn't high enough.

You can change this in your web hosting panel. Here's how:

  1. Login to cPanel Control Panel
  2. Scroll to the Software Section
  3. Select Select PHP Version
  4. Click the Switch to PHP Options link on the right
  5. Look for upload in the list. You will find this is probably set to 2M or 4M
  6. Click on the current value and select a new one. 8M should do it. If you do select any higher, it won't matter as the server is configured to only allow a max of 8M
  7. Click Apply. Click Save at the bottom of the screen
  8. Job done
