# Setting PHP Upload Max Size

You may receive a message in WordPress like

"trace.zip exceeds the maximum upload size for this site" or "the uploaded file exceeds your upload_max_filesize directive".

If so, you may want to increase this setting. This setting can be applied on a per website basis, on a server level (this will apply to only website assigned to that specific application role) or globally (this will be the default setting for all Application roles and websites added).

To increase the PHP Upload Max Size on a single website:

  1. On the website dashboard select the advanced drop down menu
  2. Click Developer Tools and scroll to php.ini editor
  3. In the directive box put upload_max_filesize, select text and input your desired maximum value in the Text field
  4. Click Create to finish


You should set upload_max_filesize and post_max_size to the desired maximum value. This should be specified in megabytes and suffixed with an M, for example 200 megabytes would be written as 200M.
