I just bought a WP theme and when I attempt to upload the .zip file I get the error and "the uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini". I contacted the theme support and they said "contact your hosting provider and ask them to increase the memory allocated to your site under php.ini file to overcome the issue." Can someone help me with this?
@ab1183 you just have to create a .user.ini file in the root folder of your site. Here's what you put in it:
memory_limit = 1024M max_execution_time = 320 max_input_time = 240 post_max_size = 120M max_input_vars = 2000 file_uploads = 6 max_file_uploads = 20 upload_max_filesize = 100M
If you are on a plan that gives you 512M of ram, you should change the memory_limit directive to 512M.
You can also tell WordPress how much memory can it take, by adding this to your wp-config.php:
define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '1024M' );
The same goes for the WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT.
Hope it helps!
