Changing Maximum Upload Size

Firts check your control panel for the "PHP Options" icon. If available you can change the PHP version and change the PHP configuration in this area.
Upload limits may be changed via the "Switch to PHP Options" link.

If the icon is not available in your control panel you will need to create a php.ini file in the directory that is used by the application and uploading and include the following values...

LimitRequestBody = 0
php_value upload_max_filesize = 12M
php_value post_max_size = 12M

Change 12M to 24M for example. Higher will cause your php load to go up and may flag your account so be careful with this setting.

If the above doesn't work please try the following...
edit the .htaccess file in your public_html folder and add the following code...
php_value upload_max_filesize 12M
php_value post_max_size 12M

If the .htaccess file does not exist already you may create a blank file named .htaccess and add the code.
