    Hi @LXsysadmin,

     

    I've been able to get it as high as 4GB.  Keep in mind that since it is a shared server, your individual limit does not guarantee you'll have your limit available at all times.  You get what its got when its available!

     

    If you need to increase file upload size, no problem at 250mb.  There are also some WP plugins that will allow you to upload files larger than the specified limits.

     

    Hope this helps,

    James

    How do you configure the limit? I can't figure out a straight answer on how to change it from the default.

    Hi @Ejdub,

     

    I download/edit the user.ini file in my root directory.  The settings below are a typical setup for one of my smaller sites.

     

    memory_limit = 2048M
    max_execution_time = 1600
    max_input_time = 320
    post_max_size = 120M
    max_input_vars = 2000
    file_uploads = 5
    max_file_uploads = 20
    upload_max_filesize = 200M

     

    Hope this helps,

    James

    I could not find the user.ini file in my file manager... what you suggest for this?

    Re: Uploading WordPress themes and PHP Limit. How to increase?

    You can create .user.ini file by yourself from your local computer via Notepad++ or any text editor, then upload it to your website home directory (.../html/) via SFTP (you can use Filezilla for the upload).

    Re: Uploading WordPress themes and PHP Limit. How to increase?

     Another option. You can create the USER.INI file directly in CPANEL as well. 

     

    See screenshot steps below.  (hope this helps someone)

    Hi @Lenore,

    Hope its going well your way!  From someone who has tried A LOT of different hosting packages, before switching keep in mind almost all companies offering any form of shared hosting have fairly restrictive limits on how you can allocate and change server resources.  GoDaddy does well in providing capabilities and parameters.  At any company that you are considering, ask their tech support what the limits are for the parameters you need to set, and how its done. There is a wide variation to what goes on behind that cPanel or MangedWP hosting!!

     

    The information that @Nick_Dubes provided was great and indeed it is applicable to any hosting company using cPanel. 

     

    One final comment on resources and WordPress.  Theme and plugin combination can make a HUGE difference in resource consumption.  If you are consistently running into problems install a plugin like https://wordpress.org/plugins/theme-check/ (Theme Check) and look at what resources may be the bottleneck.  Sometimes, simply finding a different plugin that works better with your particular theme may be a good alternative to switching hosting platforms and carrying the same problems with you.

     

    Hope this helps,

    James

    Hey Nick

     

    None of these links are active. Can you repost them or pop them up somewhere else?

    Solution

    Re: Uploading WordPress themes and PHP Limit. How to increase?

    Here's a much easier way to do it:

    1. Go to your CPanel and scroll down to the Software section

    2. Click "Select PHP Version"

    3. Click "Switch to PHP Extension" on the top right corner

    4. The bottom of the page has "upload_max_filesize" section

    5. Click the dropdown menu to the largest size

    6. Click save

    CClarke - THANK YOU! I was about to give up and call GoDaddy. You rock.

    Re: Uploading WordPress themes and PHP Limit. How to increase?

    Great solution - problem solved, thank you!

    Re: Uploading WordPress themes and PHP Limit. How to increase?

    thanks a lot bro :-) It worked :-)

    Re: Uploading WordPress themes and PHP Limit. How to increase?

    Thank you ...100% working

    Re: Uploading WordPress themes and PHP Limit. How to increase?

    After an hour of Googling, cclarke had the solution right here. All editing to the php.ini files i'd done essentially did absolutely nothing, with the setting still stating 2mb when i went to this section. As soon as i changed it here, it all worked perfectly.
