Change PHP upload limits for my Hosting account

By changing the upload limit, it means that any large files you try to upload won’t be rejected by the server. However, it may still get rejected due to slow upload speeds or from maxing out your account resources.

If you want to change the default PHP upload limit for your Hosting account (32MB), simply follow the instructions detailed below.

Please note: this process applies to Web Hosting plans purchased after July 2020 and Premium Hosting plans purchased after August 2020 (cPanel).
