WordPress file upload limitations

I am unable to upload media to my WordPress site.

 

See status messages in attached pictures.

 

Incomprehensible to me since I have unlimited storage as per my plan

 

How do I resolve this?

Re: WordPress file upload limitations

Since you didn't attached the errors you are receiving I can only surmise it is either file size or memory limitations.   Storage really has nothing to do with uploading.

 

Check the file size -- WordPress limits at 50M

 

Check your wp-config.php file to see what your memory limit is set at and increase it.  If not noted add this line to your wp-config.php file:

 

define( 'WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M' );

 

More info on this file and memory here.

The line would be added into your wp-config.php file via FTP.   Make a copy first as a backup!
