If you deliver online content hopefully through WordPress, you need to increase upload limit in wordpress . This is really simple to do and work with most shared hosting servers. If you follow me, you know I am a big proponent of 1and1 as compared to the other webhosts like GoDaddy and BlueHost. secure web hosting . The following 2 steps should work with the other hosting servers but definitely works with a shared 1and1 hosting plan.
As a side note, I use the File manager plugin on my backend to manage my files. If you would like to see my FileManager setup just click here.
First step is to create the php.ini file that tells the server to allow bigger uploads. Most web hosts especially shared hosting will cap you on the upload limit so that you don’t hog too much system resources on their servers.
