How to increase the size of uploaded files in PHP

The standard maximum size of the file that you can upload in PHP is 2MB, but some scripts require an increase of this size.

Just create a file named php.ini in your computer and upload it to the folder of your web hosting, which you want to change the maximum size for:

upload_max_filesize = 10M
post_max_size = 20M

This will increase the maximum size of uploaded files in PHP from 2MB to 10MB. Note that post_max_size should be twice larger than upload_max_filesize.
