Server Max Upload File Size Setting (For uploading large files)

If you’ve seen a notice in your WordPress admin which complains about a low Max Upload Filesize¬†then this page will help you understand more.

What is Max Upload File Size?

Max upload filesize is a server setting which defines how large a file can be uploaded to the server via the browser. This setting is set in several places, but ultimately is designed to restrict users uploading huge files which clog the system.

Why does it matter?

Unfortunately this can interfere with a web-based CRM.

If you’re running a LARGE CSV import, for example, there is a potential that the file size you’re trying to upload is larger than the maximum limit.

How do I increase the max file size limit?

There are several ways you can increase the value for this server setting. We recommend trying these in order.

If you want to see if one of these has worked, simply go to “Jetpack CRM > System Assistant > System Status” and there you can see the value “Max File Upload Size”.

1) Ask your host

Most hosting companies get asked this question all the time. Here’s what you need to copy & paste to them. If they say “no” or they tell you this isn’t possible, it’s likely they have a very low limit and may be a good reason to try a new host.

What to send to your host:

Hi, I’d like to increase the upload_max_filesize server setting for my website *YOURWEBSITEHERE* – Please can you set it to 192mb for this website.


To achieve this you’ll need to add or edit the .htaccess file at the root of your WordPress install, or domain and add the following line:

php_value upload_max_filesize 192mb
