# Finding the correct PHP.INI

To make sure you are editing the correct PHP.INI settings file, create a PHP file (e.g. info.php) in your nada website folder with the following contents:

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

Open the phpinfo page in your web browser and you should see output similar to below screenshot. Edit the php.ini file displayed by the setting Loaded Configuration File.

# File upload limits

By default PHP allows uploads of 2MB which could be a problem if you have large files that you want to upload. To change the settings:

  1. Edit the php.ini file in notepad/notepad++ and look for the setting upload_max_filesize

  2. The line should look like:

; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
; http://php.net/upload-max-filesize

upload_max_filesize = 2M
  1. Change it to the required file upload limit per your needs
upload_max_filesize = 800M
  1. There is another setting that MUST be changed as well for the file upload limits to work. Look for the configuration post_max_size and change it to match the value for upload_max_filesize:
post_max_size = 800M
