How to Increase Maximum upload size in WordPress

6 ways to Increase Maximum upload size in WordPress

The earliest error you will get while using or installing WordPress to any server is “[file] exceeds the maximum upload size”. This slow down our work and create unnecessary problems.

WordPress is a home for many websites ranging from blogging sites to big ecommerce site. Every site requires many plugins, Media files and much more. The initial upload size in WordPress is 2mb to 150mb depends on the hosting provider.

How to check your maximum upload size?

To check what is the current max upload size limit in your WordPress site then navigate to WP Admin → Media → Add New. You will see the current max upload size on the bottom as shown in the screenshot.

How to Increase Maximum upload size in WordPress

This is very low to operate a website. Thus, we have brought 6 ways to increase the maximum upload size in wordpress.

1. Update .htaccess file:

1.	php_value upload_max_filesize 64M
2.	php_value post_max_size 128M
3.	php_value memory_limit 256M
4.	php_value max_execution_time 300
5.	php_value max_input_time 300

            This is majorly used when your website is hosted on local server. To navigate to your .htaccess file, go to the folder where WordPress is installed. If you are updating on a live server then go to public_html folder, there go to setting and uncheck hide dot files. After open the file paste this code at the bottom of the file.

This will define the maximum upload size in Megabytes. Replace the numbers as per your requirement. The max execution time and max input time are in seconds. The execution time defines the limit of time spent on a single script. Choose a number that is suitable for your site.

2. Edit Function.php file:

            If you feel difficulty in editing .htaccess file or couldn’t able to find it and you are more comfortable in editing theme files then you can use this method. Here you need to add some lines of code to change the values of maximum file upload size and time taken to read a script.

But note that if you changed your wordpress theme then the maximum upload size will reset to its default values and then again you must edit it.

1.	@ini_set( 'upload_max_size' , '64M' );
2.	@ini_set( 'post_max_size', '64M');
3.	@ini_set( 'max_execution_time', '300' );

3. php.ini Option

This is a default file used to configure any application which runs on PHP. This file contains parameters required for file timeout, upload size, and resource limits. In some cases, this file is not visible to the other option would be to create a new file instead.

Open any text editor and create a new file. Copy the following code and save it as php.ini.

1.	upload_max_filesize = 25M
2.	post_max_size = 13M
3.	memory_limit = 15M
How to Increase Maximum upload size in WordPress

4. wp-config.php File

Another way of increasing the upload size in WordPress is to define the size parameter in the wp-config.php file. This file is also available in public_html folder.

1.	@ini_set( 'upload_max_size' , '20M' );
2.	@ini_set( 'post_max_size', '13M');
3.	@ini_set( 'memory_limit', '15M' );

5. Plugin Method

Not everyone is a fan of writing code or accessing root files using SSH or FTP. For that situation, the plugin comes in handy and luckily there is a WordPress plugin available for increasing WordPress upload size. The plugin we will be using is Increase Max Upload Filesize plugin.

Go to your WordPress Dashboard → Plugins → Add new, search “Increase Max Upload Filesize” then activate and install the plugin. Once installed, go to plugin settings and simply enter the value for upload size.

How to Increase Maximum upload size in WordPress

Click the Save Changes button to apply the new upload size.

6. Contact Your Hosting Provider

If you do not want to edit the files yourself then you can always contact your hosting provider to do it for you.

HOW TO INSTALL WORDPRESS ON YOUR DOMAIN

Hello Bunkers, Welcome to 8th chapter of web development series. Today we will learn how to install a WordPress CMS on your domain using different method. You can easily use any of the method to install WordPress by just following our article.

WordPress is known for being one of the most popular content management system (CMS) software options available to date. One of the main reasons for this is because WordPress is easy to use and meets the needs of almost any type of website and business.

Installing the CMS is a simple process that only takes about five minutes. But if you’re new to the software, installing WordPress may seem difficult.

That’s why we’ve created this guide to take you through the installation process step-by-step, so you can quickly get your website up and running.

We’re going to review four common WordPress installation methods together.

Four Ways to Install WordPress

  1. Choose a hosting provider with automatic installation
  2. Install to your computer
  3. Use the cPanel and auto-installers
  4. Manually install with FTP

5 Steps to Prepare You to Install WordPress

Before you get started with the installation process, you’ll need to see these five simple steps. These steps will help speed up the installation process and ensure you are completely ready to go.

1. Obtain Web Server Access

One of the most popular web server software options is Apache. It’s possible to create your own web server to install WordPress on, however, it’s more common for users to purchase a hosting provider that runs on a web server, such as Bluehost or SiteGround.

If you are using a hosting provider, you’ll need to make sure it meets Wordpress’ three requirements prior to installation. These requirements include:

  • PHP version 7.2 or greater.
  • MySQL version 5.6 or greater OR MariaDB version 10.0 or greater.
  • HTTPS support

2. Obtain a Text Editor

You’ll also need to make sure you have a text editor, such as Notepad. Text editors allow you to open, view, and edit plain text files without any formatting. This is how you will edit your WordPress files. If you use a word processor such as Microsoft Word, which comes with its own formatting, you could potentially cause damage to your files and code.

3. Obtain an FTP Client

FTP, or file transfer protocol, is the method in which you will upload, download, and manage your WordPress files on your server. If you choose a hosting provider, this should be taken care of for you.

4. Choose a Web Browser

You can choose any web browser (e.g. Safari, Chrome, Firefox) of your choice to download and install WordPress.

5. Download the Latest Version of WordPress

You can always make sure you have the latest version of WordPress by visiting their website and downloading their most recent update. 

Now, let’s review your WordPress installation options.

How to Install WordPress

WordPress keeps installation simple — no matter which method you choose, the process should only take about five minutes. We will discuss the four WordPress installation options below and who they are most beneficial for.

We recommend the simplest option — finding a hosting provider that offers automatic WordPress installation. But, really, it’s up to you.

  1. Choose a Hosting Provider with Automatic WordPress Installation. There are a number of website hosting providers that offer automatic WordPress installation, such as Bluehost, WP Engine, or Dreamhost, making this the easiest installation method. This is a great option if you’re new to WordPress or don’t have a background in web development. If you’re unsure whether your provider offers automatic WordPress installation, check out their website — that information is typically listed on their support page.
  2. Install WordPress on your computer. You can install WordPress directly to your computer. This method is uncommon because, although you’ll have a fully-functioning website, WordPress will only be accessible locally. This method is typically only useful if you’re just looking to play around with the CMS on your own and don’t want a website that others can access. You can read our article on how to install Local Server on your computer
  3. Use the cPanel and Auto-Installers
  4. Using FTP for manual installation

Installing WordPress through the cPanel is a good option if you want a bit more of a hands-on experience. This is more common for web developers or people who have some sort of technical background who want to tailor the installation process.

Installing Through Cpanel

The cPanel is a dashboard that many hosting providers give you access to upon sign up. Once you login to your panel with the credentials provided by your host, you should see a section in your cPanel called “auto-installers”. All cPanels look something like this:

cpanel-dashboard
\

Under the auto-installer section in your cPanel, click on the WordPress icon.

WordPress-cpanel

You should be redirected to a page where you can click “Install Now”. Once you have clicked that button, you will be asked to enter the domain name where you want WordPress to be installed. No matter the cPanel or auto-installer you are using, this page should look similar.

wordpress-software-setup

SUnder “Protocol”, the default is “http”. We recommend you stick with this unless you have installed an SSL certificate — in which case, you should use “https”. You’ll also be asked if you want to enter a “Directory”. In most cases, you’ll want to leave this blank to ensure WordPress is installed to your main domain. If you leave the field blank, your URL will look like this: www.mysite.com. If you enter a directory, your URL will look like this: www.mysite.com/blog, meaning WordPress will only be installed on a portion of your site.

You can also enter the name of your website (read: business name) and description (read: purpose of your website) under “Site Settings”. If you want to change these later, you can always go back in and update them.

WordPress-site-settings

The last thing you’ll need to do is complete your admin page information. Enter your admin username, password, email address, and anything else required — there may be a few more questions to complete based on the auto-installer you chose. Then, click “Install”.

add-a-new-user-in-wordpress

You should now be able to access the backend of your site on WordPress at www.mysite.com/wp-admin. This is also where you can edit your admin details if needed.

Manually Install With FTP

Between the number of website hosting providers that automatically install WordPress for you, as well as the auto-installers available in your cPanel, there isn’t really a need to manually install the software with an FTP. However, if you do choose this installation route, you can follow the steps below. 

First, you’ll need an FTP program such as SmartFTP or FileZilla (as mentioned in the five tasks you need to complete prior to beginning installation).

Next, head to the WordPress website and download the latest version of the CMS.

download-WordPress

SThen unzip the WordPress file and upload it to your public directory, which should look something like this: public_html.

wordpress-public-directory

S

Go to your cPanel and find the “MySQL Databases” button. All cPanel’s should have a similar look, although your MySQL button may be located in a slightly different location.

mysql-database

Source

Follow the prompt that asks you to enter your database name. Once you have done that, click “Create Database”.

mysql-database-wordpress

Now that the database has been created, you’ll be asked to create a “user” for your MySQL account. Complete your username and password and click “Create User”. 

mysql-users

Give that user access to your database by adding their information as well as the name of the database you’re adding them to.

mysql-add-user-to-database

On the following page, you’ll be asked about the privileges you want to provide that user — make sure they are all checked.

mysql-user-privileges

SBy now your FTP transfer should be complete and it’s time to visit your domain to complete the install. If the transfer was successful, WordPress will prompt you to choose your language when you visit your domain.

Pick your desired language and click “Continue”.

WordPress-select-language

You’ll then be asked to enter your Database “Name”, “Username”, “Password”, “Database Host”, and “Table Prefix”.

Once you’ve completed those fields, click “Submit”.

WordPress-database-name

Click the button that says “Run the Install”.You’ll be asked to give WordPress your admin information.This will include your “Site Title”, “Username”, “Password”, and “Email” that you created previously.

installing-wordpress

Finally, click “Install WordPress”.You should now be able to log into WordPress with your username and password.

Congrats! You’ve manually installed WordPress.


Final Thoughts on WordPress Installation

If you need help at any point during the installation process, you can check out the WordPress FAQ or troubleshooting pages. No matter your background, the WordPress installation process is quick and easy, allowing you more time to focus on the things that matter, such as customizing your website and creating 

front-end & back-end

Front End Vs Back End Development

Hey Bunkers, Welcome to the 4th chapter of our series web developer. We have till now covered all the basic requirements to make a website, that is about domain hosting and how to connect them. Now what’s next? Are you confused what to do after buying domain and hosting. Don’t worry we are here to help you guys. In this chapter we shall learn about various types of languages used to make a website. We will divide them into front end and back end languages. After reading this blog you can easily distinguish and all the difference between front end and back end programming. You can even choose to become a front end, back end or a full stack developer.

What is Front and back end development?

To get a better idea about the difference between front-end vs back-end development, let’s start at the basics. When you know how web-based projects work, you’ll understand what each specialization is responsible for.

Let’s consider a practical example and assume you want to create a Facebook account.

First, you find your way to the start page of Facebook.

You see a clean homepage with just a handful of helpful links. After a few seconds, you find the right link to click, “Create Account”. You enter your account details, choose a Facebook handle, and confirm using a sign-up button.

So far, everything you saw and used was designed by front-end developers:

  • Colors
  • Fonts
  • Layouts

In other words, front-end developers take care of the visible parts of a website.

So where do back-end developers step in, then?

Well, the moment you confirm your signup process, things get interesting. The information you entered during the registration is sent to Facebook. They use their web servers to store your details in their database. Of course, all of this happens “behind the scenes” , so you can’t really see how Twitter does it.

That’s the work of back-end developers. They built the systems that are responsible for receiving, storing, and retrieving data.

So, when you want to log in, you use your username and password. The system checks it against the data you gave during the registration. If it’s a match, your login is successful, and you can see your Facebook feed.

Summing it up: Back-end developers create the non-visible parts of a website.

front-end developers build everything you see in your web browser, or the client side. Back-end developers, on the other hand, create data-driven features and systems on the server-side.

Both areas work together. The front-end developer needs to make sure that the visible elements on a web page are linked properly to the features built by the back-end developer.

Languages for Front End Development:

As a Front-End Developer, you need to learn at least three languages:

  • HTML – For Markup
  • CSS – For Styling and design
  • JavaScript – For Functionality

HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language: Html is used as mark up language and defines the structure of the page. It helps browser understand which text is heading, title or para and much more. You’ll use it to create the actual content and structure for a website. It includes images, text paragraphs, headings, videos, etc. But a pure HTML web page isn’t nice to look at.

CSS or Cascading Style Sheets: CSS defines the design of your page. It is your main tool for styling the HTML elements to look pretty.

JavaScript:  JavaScript is used to implement functionality to the website allows you to breathe some life into your web page. You’ll use JavaScript to add animations, transitions, and interactivity to the elements you created with HTML and styled with CSS.

You can learn HTML and CSS in just a few days. The best way to learn HTML and CSS is to build your own small websites from scratch.

JavaScript may take a longer time to learn and implement but once you learn it, then you have attained powerful weapon.

Languages for Back End Development:

The tools you can use to become a Back-End Developer aren’t as straightforward as it was with the front-end development. The foundation for any back-end work is to learn how to create a connection between website users and databases.

When it comes to choosing a back-end language, the most popular choices are:

  • Java
  • SQL
  • PHP
  • Python
  • Ruby
  • C#

Frontend, Backend or Full Stack developer?

I know it may feel too early to make any decisions about your future career at this point. And I don’t mean to put any pressure on you.

But if you find it difficult to decide what to focus on when you start learning, then

You can learn both areas and combine your front-end skills with those back-end tools. That would make you a Full-Stack Developer.

I mean, it’s not going to be quick or easy to learn two sets of skills. So just start with either one and go one step at a time.

And if that sounds too tough for now, I know how you feel. Learning even one set of tools is going to be more than enough work. But your efforts will pay themselves back.


If you are not ready to code right now and want to blog or something related to it , then there is even option for that . To get the detailed information on other options like blogger and WordPress keep continuing our web developer series. I can assure you we will not keep you unsatisfied. You will be filled with knowledge at every step. If you are interested in app development, track our series of app development :

How to Connect Your Domain Name and Hosting Account

Welcome bunkers to the 3rd tutorial of our web development session. Today we will teach you how to connect a domain name brought from a domain registrar to a hosting account brought from different website. It is a very simple process, you can do it if you know how to drag and click the mouse and copy and paste a content.

We are assuming that you have:

  1. A Domain name
  2. A Hosting account
  3. And both are from different website.

Note: If both are from same website, it will be connected automatically.

So, let’s start connecting your domain to your hosting account

Step #1:

Let us consider you brought your hosting account from A2hosting.com. Copy all the nameservers from the hosting account. When you buy a domain from a website, the nameservers in the domain panel are updated of that website. But if you want to connect it to different hosting provider then just update the nameserver of that hosting website to your domain. This will redirect your request for this domain to the connected server.

What Is A Domain Name And How To Register One

“What is a domain” is the first question arises in every novice mind when starting web developing. Many of the beginners are often filled with wrong ideas and definitions for such a simple word domain. In this guide we will clear all your domain related questions and cover about domain name, choosing and buying domain and about domain name servers (dns).


What is a Domain Name?

As per Wikipedia: “A domain name is an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority or control within the Internet. Domain names are formed by the rules and procedures of the Domain Name System (DNS). Any name registered in the DNS is a domain name.”

Confusing right? Don’t worry we will simplify everything here for you. A Domain is the name which you give to your website. It is a unique string which directs to your website. For simpler meaning lets imagine a website as your office. Then the domain name will be the address of your office.

Internet is a giant network of computers connected through each other by large network of cables. Each computer who is a part of worldwide web (WWW) is assigned to an IP address which is a unique long string used to access it. It will look like

216.3.128.12

Isn’t it very difficult to remember it? Thus Domain names were invented. Now when you visit a website you don’t need to remember a long string of numbers, instead a small unique name and you will be directed to your desired website.


How Domain Name Works

As Discussed above, Internet is a giant connection of computer connected to each other. Computer which stores a website is called a server. Consider the same example, Imagine Office is your website and its address is your domain, then your office is the server. For someone to reach your office, he/she needs an address. Similarly for a computer to display a website it needs the IP address of the servers. Similarly every domain has a Domain Name System (DNS) which is the phone book of the Internet. It contains all the IPs that the domain is linking. For example if a domain is linking to a hosting provider like go-daddy then its name servers will be

ns1.godaddy.com

n2.godaddy.com

So even ever a browser request for a website its domain first check in the name servers whether the IP is available, if yes it will return the IP to the browser and browser access the website.


Choosing a correct Domain Name:

Domain Names are available in many extensions like .net, .tv, .info, .io but the most popular extension is .com. There are extensions for particular countries even like .uk for United Kingdom, .de for Germany and .in for India. But our recommendation is to go with .com as it is popular and easy to remember. However one must consider all the below suggestions to seek a professional domain.

  1. Selecting .com extensions are always easy to remember and professional
  2. Keep the domain name as short as possible
  3. Trying selecting keywords for your domain name for seo purpose
  4. Strictly avoid hyphens
  5. Never copy some famous domains with different extensions


How to buy a domain

You can buy domains from many companies. Companies who register domains for the user are called domain registrars. These Companies usually charge a minimal of $14.99 for a year. But this also depends on the extension and domain registrars.

ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) is the official Company which gives license to all the domain registrars. There is also an official domain registrar called domain.com which provides domains with the same rate. You can buy hosting from any hosting provider and link your domain to that hosting provider through DNS.


We hope this guide cleared all your confusions and helped you understand the first step of web development very well. You can also get ideas of your domains through domain generators.
