When importing a big export file from another site, or when installing dummy data from your template developer, the error “the uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini” is likely to show. Here’s what you can do to fix it.
1. Open your .htaccess file via FTP or File manager
2. Add the following code at the bottom of .htaccess
# BEGIN Increase Max Upload Size php_value upload_max_filesize 20M php_value post_max_size 20M php_value max_execution_time 300 php_value max_input_time 300 # END Increase Max Upload Size
