PHP / Apache: set max file upload and post size

Last updated on

Firstly, you need to locate your php.ini file. In this example, our php.ini file is located in /etc/php/7.2/apache2/php.ini

sudo nano /etc/php/7.2/apache2/php.ini

In nano, press CTRL + W and search for upload_max_filesize and change the value to 64M (for 64 megabytes).

upload_max_filesize = 64M

Press CTRL + W again and search for post_max_size and change the value to 64M (for 64 megabytes).

post_max_size = 64M

Save file and exit. (Press CTRL + X, press Y and then press ENTER

Restart Apache to apply changes.

sudo systemctl restart apache2
