Increasing WordPress Max Upload Size and Updating PhP

You shall soon all be able to see 12 mb photos on this blog! Yes, I finally decided I was sick of 2 mb photo uploads, and upped the level.

It was slightly complicated, which is why I haven’t done it before. I am posting the details for future reference.

# find the php.ini file
php --ini | head -n 1
# which returned the wrong place:
cd /etc/php/7.4/cli
# instead replace cli with fpm
cd /etc/php/7.4/fpm
sudo nano php.ini
	post_max_size = 12M
	upload_max_filesize = 12M
	php_value max_execution_time 300
	php_value max_input_time 300
sudo service php7.4-fpm restart

# now edit the nginx config
sudo nano /etc/nginx/sites-avaliable/

# while here I also had to upgrade to php7.4
# the sticky part of this was I didn't realize you had to redirect in the nginx config file.
