    Hi, this is probably a total newbie question... But I am trying to upload a plugin to my wordpress site. Never had issues before. Now it's saying "The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini."
    I called support for my server and they told me I don't have an SSH client installed. He couldn't find my php.ini file for some reason. Is there a pretty easy way to up the size restrictions for this domain or the entire server? The file is less then 6 megabytes...

    Thanks a lot!

    By default, PHP limits uploaded files' size to 2 MB. This limit applies to all PHP applications. Edit the following options in the "/etc/php.ini" file on the Plesk server and set the values to match your needs. For example:

    upload_max_filesize = 32M
    post_max_size = 32M

    Restart Apache after the "php.ini" file modification.
