How to Increase the Maximum File Size Limit in WordPress Using .htaccess

If you’re trying to upload a file to your WordPress website and keep encountering the “upload_max_filesize” error, it means that the file size limit is too low. By default, most servers have a limit of 2MB, which can be easily increased using the .htaccess file.

Here’s how to increase the maximum file size limit in WordPress using the .htaccess file:

  1. Log in to your WordPress website cpanel and navigate to the root directory of your website.
  2. Look for the .htaccess file and open it using the default cpanel text editor.
  3. Add the following code at the bottom of the file:

Now save the file, Note: You can change the values to the desired file size limit.

That’s it! Your server should now allow you to upload larger files without any issues. Remember to check your PHP settings to ensure that the changes have been applied.

If you’re still encountering the “upload_max_filesize” error, there may be other factors that are causing the issue, such as server configuration or plugins. In that case, you may want to consult with your web host or a WordPress developer to resolve the issue.
