Increasing Max Execution Time or Maximum Upload File Size in WordPress
To increase the Max Execution Time or Maximum Upload File Size in WordPress.
1. Update wp-config.php file
@ini_set( 'upload_max_filesize' , '512M' ); @ini_set( 'post_max_size', '256M'); @ini_set( 'memory_limit', '512M' ); @ini_set( 'max_execution_time', '600' ); @ini_set( 'max_input_time', '300' );
2. Update .htaccess file
php_value upload_max_filesize 128M php_value post_max_size 128M php_value memory_limit 256M php_value max_execution_time 300 php_value max_input_time 300
Change the numbers to the values that you need. The max execution time and max input time values are in seconds and might need to be increased further if your internet connection is slow.
3. Use plugin
There are free plugins which you can make the changes on from your admin panel after installing any.
4. Contact hosting provider
Reach over to the customer support of your hosting provider and ask them to increase these limits for you.
