There are several scenarios that you might need to increase or decrease your php maximum upload file using php script files , and for those cases you have two ways to reach the goal , either using cPanel WHM control panel or by editing the php.ini file directly.
- Login to your cPanel WHM control panel
- Navigate to Home »Software »MultiPHP INI Editor
- Select Editor Mode and select the php version you are targeting then start edit the values :
For example ; to Maximize allowed size for uploaded files to 256 MB add these two values in php ini editor :
uploadmax_filesize = 256M postmax_size = 256M
Change maximum upload file size for PHP from php.ini
Or you can go directly to the php.ini file and start change the values for both uploadmax_filesize and postman_size .
To locate the php.ini, you simply run the ssh command:
php -i | grep -i “loaded configuration file”
