I am currently having problems with one of my blogs. A lot of conflict has been happening with the old host and the new host. Thankfully I still have both of them active so I still manage to get files over and over just to make sure everything is covered. I think I’ve backed up my files more than 10 times in the last week or so.
Anyway, I’m trying to upload one of my zip files in the cpanel when I got this error: “
Ok, I didn’t want to contact my host because I have a feeling I’d get lost in their words so I tried to search online for help. Thankfully, I found this post from WebConsulting.com.au. It said all I need to create a php.ini file in Notepad and paste some codes, then install it in my wp-admin folder.
So in notepad, I created a new file and pasted what was needed:
;; set memory limit for cache.php
memory_limit = 64M
upload_max_filesize = I tried 70M and 128M (thinking it might needed to be in 32-64-128Mb format)
post_max_size = 33M
I then saved it as php.ini, making sure I click “All files” in the part that says Save As Type: so it doesn’t get saved as a text file (.txt). After saving my file, I logged on to Filezilla and uploaded it to my wp-admin folder.
Unfortunately, it didn’t work. I did ask my host after that and was advised that 50M was indeed the limit for file manager. If my file exceeds that size, I would have to use FTP to upload my folder. I’m not giving up though, I’m still hoping there’s another way since I know transferring via FTP will take hoursssss.
Any ideas on what I can do?
