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.

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

So are you ready to launch?….let’s get a website started.

There are hundreds of different website building platforms and website builders around the market like WordPress, wix, drupel and many more.

If you want to get started with websites they are 2 main things to be done

How these things are to be done:

  • Very first you have to buy a domain name for your particular website(like Bunkerspoint.com)
  • After getting up with your domain name you should buy a server(i.e Hosting).[these things are mentioned briefly on our Article (Click Here)

Where To Design My Website

  • WordPress, Wix, Joomla and many more but as a survey from my end WordPress is the easiest platform I’ve ever worked with and also it is free content management system.
  • it can be used to develop any kind of website, be it for a small business or for a large enterprise.
  • My team has worked on this website for more than 10 years and after completing more than 150+ websites, we can vouch you that there is no other CMS better than wordpress

Why choose this CMS? What is so great about WordPress? Why is it the right choice for your business?

  • Easy user management
  • SEO benefits
  • Pretty permalinks
  • Social media features

1. WordPress Is Free And Open Source:

                 One the most important and frequently asked question by the user is “Do I have to pay to use word press?” We tell them it is completely free and open source. Open source gives us the freedom to use, modify and redesign the page in your convenient way without paying even a single penny. However, there might be costs involved in other areas. We will discuss the cost of using the open source WordPress software later in the next article.

2. Friendly CMS:

                Content management system is important thing it can make or break your entire business.Content management in wordpress is flexible which means it provides the developer to design a website in a easy and convenient manner and without any complex code writing.

3. Easy User Management:

              WordPress comes pre-loaded with a basic user management tool. But if you want to manage complex user roles & permissions, in that case, you will have to deploy user management WordPress plugins on your website. User management plugins are advanced plugins which helps the developer to create, edit and access permissions.  it can be used and managed by anyone even without any technical or coding knowledge. Its functionalities are easy to understand and it comes with a host of themes, tools and plugins that aids in making a beautiful website.

4. SEO Benefits:

           Is WordPress good for SEO, and why should you use it instead of another content management system like Joomla, Drupal, or even Squarespace?

           All the wordpress sites initially comes up with seo features like  the ability to allow search engines to crawl content, ping search engines when content is published, and other SEO features. It’s Mobile Optimized is the best feature because with the rise in the number of mobile users. If you don’t have a website that is mobile-friendly can severely affect your site’s traffic and conversion rate.

5. Pretty Permalinks:

                    WordPress comes with the ability to use so-called “pretty permalinks.” That means links to posts and pages can contain keywords so search engines and visitors understand what they are about.the internet is full of opportunistic and malicious-minded people who are indeed to access and harm the website therefore the wordpress provides you with solid security tools.

6. Social Media Features:

                     Social media has become the significant factor for online businesses. WordPress allows easy integration of various social media accounts through the use of widgets & plugins. Engagement with your audience is of most importance factor  if you want to improve your brand’s credibility. By using social media tools from WordPress, you’ll be able to easily engage with your audience, anytime, anywhere and gather brand visibility as well as traffic.


                 So there is no doubt that WordPress is the best CMS platform to work on. WordPress has been around for over a decade, and none of that time has gone to waste.

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 

.com vs .org

WordPress.org v/s WordPress.com

Did you know that WordPress.com and WordPress.org are actually two very different platforms? Often beginners confuse the two which leads them to choose the wrong platform. We’re often asked by our users which is the better platform: WordPress.com vs WordPress.org.

In other words, one is going to give you an entirely different  “thing” than the other. So I have worked on it and have created a most comprehisive comparison on WordPress.com and WordPress.org.

WordPress.org – “.org” stands for “organization”

WordPress.com – “.com” stands for “commercial”

Key difference between Org and Com

         If you download WordPress from WordPress.org, YOU host it. You set it up with your own hosting provider and use it on your own website, which gives you a ton of flexibility. This is why WordPress.org is often also called self-hosted WordPress.

On the other-hand WordPress.com is blog/website platform based on wordpress.org software. Instead of downloading the software  and hosting it by yourself you can just sign up for a WordPress.com account and have a working website right away.

How Much Does a Website Cost on Each Platform?

What’s confusing in the WordPress.com vs WordPress.org debate is that both ways of creating a website are touted as free,But in some cases cost are to be paid.

WordPress.com does allow you to set up a website entirely for free, but there are some downsides to this:

  • You cannot remove WordPress.com’s own ads and branding from your site
  • A blog cannot be manetize.
  • You get limited disk space of 3GB

If you do want to use your site for a commercial purpose, you will have to pay at least $8 / month on your WordPress.com plan + the cost of a custom domain name usually in the range of $15 / year. In total, this means at least $111 annually to run a site on WordPress.com.

  • With WordPress.org, on the other hand, you can launch a completely functional website at $35 for the first year and then $50 every year after that.

     To make that happen you first need to pick up a host,For this you can refer my previous article about hosting which will be giving you the wide detail.

Website Setup and Management on WordPress.com vs WordPress.org

Even though a hosted and a self-hosted site are built on the same software, there are still vast differences in site setup, management and maintenance.

WordPress.com:

                    Refer our previous article of domain and hosting to setup a account in wordpress.com. Hosting is included and your site created automatically. No need to fiddle with an FTP server, hosting control panel, database or anything like that. You can jump right into customizing your site and creating content. The technical parts are taken care of for you.

WordPress.org:

   For Creating a website with WordPress.org, on the other hand, is a little more complicated. Here are the steps:

  1. Download the software from WordPress.org
  2. A Database should be created in your hosting account
  3. Unzip and upload WordPress to your server
  4. Run the installation script.

If you are a regular user of computer you would be having no problems accomplishing it. Sure, it takes longer than WordPress.com, but you can still get it done in 15 minutes.

Can You Install Third-Party Extensions on WordPress.com?

           For the longest time, the answer to the question was a hard, no. Now, recent changes make it a bit murkier, though the answer is still no for the majority of WordPress.com users.

          WordPress.com users who pay for the $300 (per year) Business plan have the ability to install third-party WordPress themes and plugins. That gives those users basically the same power to install extensions as self-hosted WordPress users.

Users on all other plans, including both free and paid, are not so lucky. That is, users on Free, Personal, or Premium WordPress.com plans cannot install third-party themes and plugins. This is one of the major downsides of WordPress.com

Can You Install Third-Party Extensions on WordPress.org?

With WordPress.org, you can install any one of the tens of thousands of third-party themes and plugins on your site. You have 100% control of what happens on your site.
