How to Increase File Upload Size in PHP


By default, PHP allows uploading maximum 2 MB file on the server. But you can change the maximum size of file upload as per your requirement. Using the PHP configuration file (php.ini), you can increase or decrease the file upload size in PHP.

The upload_max_filesize and post_max_size variable’s value need to be modified in php.ini file. Follow the below steps to increase the limit of file upload size in PHP.

  • Open the php.ini file in the text editor.
  • Search for upload_max_filesize variable and specify the size which you want to increase.
    upload_max_filesize = 128M
  • Search for post_max_size variable and specify the size which you want to increase. (Basically it same as upload_max_filesize variable value)
    post_max_size = 128M
  • Once done, save the modified php.ini file and restart the server.
