I recently launched CouplesCast.com, an podcast site focused on enriching the lives of marriages by talking.  Wild idea, eh?

Anyway, I realized that (eventually) I’m going to need to upload files larger than the default 32MB.  I read quite a few blogs about it like :

…but some steps didn’t work and I, since I have several sites running on the server, several I didn’t want to try.

I found a plugin, but decided I didn’t want to add plugin overhead for something that SHOULD be simple…so, alas, I called GoDaddy support and found a solution worth noting.

.user.ini

Let me show you how:

1. Here is what WP shows by default on my server:

wp-upload-limit

2. I ssh’d into the server and changed to the root directory of the wp installation

3. vim .user.ini (the leading period is important)

4. add the following lines:

file_uploads = On
post_max_size = 128M
upload_max_filesize = 128M

5. :wq (save)

6. I waited a couple of minutes; logged out and back in and now

wp-upload-limit-new

Facil.
