After setting up WordPress Multisite (MS), or Network, you may need to increase the maximum upload size allowed. You can view your current settings by creating a phpinfo.php file (ensure you’re in the correct directory) and searching for upload_max_filesize. If updating the php.ini (and/or .user.ini) file and setting the .htaccess file as recursive don’t work, you’ll need to check the Network Settings in your WordPress dashboard.
Increase Upload Max Size
- Log into your WordPress website directly or via Softaculous.
- Hover over My Sites and Network Admin to select Settings.
Alternatively, you could select Network Admin, Settings, and finally Network Settings.
- At the bottom of the page, update the Max upload file size in kilobytes (KB). You can use a converter such as within the DuckDuckGo search engine to find the kilobyte equivalent to the needed megabytes.
- Check your updated phpinfo.php file.
