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

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.

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 

CMS

What Is Content Management System (CMS)?

A content management system is a system software application that is used to create a website and manage digital content.  It typically supports multiple users in a collaborative environment.

     Word Press is a Content Management System that allows you to create and publish your content on the website. The beauty of a good content management system is to allow any user to create and manage their content without any technical know-how. A content management system will organize and store files, and provide access to their data that is version controlled. Rather than word press there are drupel, joomla and many other cms which are used to create a website.

If you’re just getting started with digital marketing and you don’t know which CMS (content management system) acts powerful in all marketing platform, Word Press is the best, I bet.

Features of CMS

        What features do you need in an enterprise CMS? Which cms is the best? What features a good content management system should have?

                     Features can vary among the various cms offerings but the basic core functions remain the same for all.

The some of the basic features a cms should provide are:

  • Built-in seo tools
  • Advanced security management
  • Social media support.
  • Updating website
  • Accessible from anywhere:

1. Built-in SEO tools:

            The particular content management system which you prefer should have seo ranking tools that make your website to rank at the top level in Google search engine.

2. Advanced security management

            The first thing that comes in the mind of every freelancer is which is the best cms that provides vast security feature?

           Security is mostly dependent upon the user’s common sense and the precautions and measures taken by him/her.

           I have worked on many content management systems, mostly net based like drupel, joomla and many more but word press is the best cms when we compare with other. It provides the advance security management factor. The Word Press security team is made up of experts, including lead developers and security researchers. Given the number of sites running off Word Press is around 75 million and accumulates up to 27% of the entire net.

3. Social media support:

                   Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram are the main social media platforms that guide most of the traffic from a wide audience. The best CMS will include everything you need to implement an integrative online strategy.

                  There are now more than 2 billion active social media users in the world. A good social media strategy can bring you in touch with at least some of them, while the social capabilities offered by some content management systems (CMSs) can be a key tool in your efforts to increase engagement as well as provide invaluable insights. By connecting all your social accounts – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn – to a CMS with integrated social capabilities, you can automatically publish any content from the platform directly to those networks.

4. You can update your website on your own terms:

              Let’s say you wanted to quickly add an image to one of your web pages. If your website was hand-coded by a third-party web development company, you’d have to ask them to add the item. Rather than being held hostage by your web development company, a CMS cuts out the middle man and enables YOU to update and edit the content of your website. By this you can make your website more dynamic and with vast functionalities. The main and biggest advantage is that there is no coding required for updating or adding an event into your website.

5. Accessible from anywhere:

                         A CMS allows users to control, manage, and structure their content in real-time. A CMS allows website content to be accessible virtually from anywhere, using any computer device that’s connected to the Internet. This is a very convenient feature as the ability to work remotely and on-the-go is increasingly important nowadays.

                        Well now let’s have a look on the pros and cons of the CMS .Building website can be very easy. You can use templates from the internet to come up with interactive content for your audience or hire a professional to help you build.

Pros:

1. Reaching a wider audience:

               Building your own website will enable you to attract more customers from a wider market. Having an online business will allow you to grow and expand your business.

2. Fresh content:

              Building your own website will enable you to promote your business. Having fresh and informative content can attract the attention of your customers.

3. Tool for advertising and publicity:
