PHP upload limits on shared hosting
Your default PHP upload limit depends on the type of hosting account you have (What type of hosting account do I have?).
|Type||Default upload limit||Max|
The upload limit does not guarantee an upload will complete — only that it isn't rejected by the server. Uploads beneath the upload limit can still fail because of:
- Upload speed, which can cause your PHP script or browser to time out.
- Your account's resource availability, which can cause large files to fail.
Change your PHP upload limit
To change the limitation, edit or add the following values in your PHP initialization file (What filename does my PHP initialization file need to use?).
file_uploads = On post_max_size = 50M upload_max_filesize = 50M
The above settings change your PHP upload limit, allowing you to upload files up to 50MB in size. Setting the PHP upload limit higher than the Max listed above will force the setting to use the default upload limit instead.
