How to increase upload maximum file size in Joomla 2.5.7?

Postby karol888 » Mon Feb 11, 2013 11:18 am

I would like to post a video file on my website. The file is about 30MB while the upload limit (as stated in the Joomla Administrator panel) is 10MB. How I can increase this value?
I consulted Google for this questions and I found suggestion about editing "php.ini" file but I don't have such a file (VPS hosting).
I would really appreciate your help!

This is something that can ONLY be changed at the hosting level and not inside Joomla. If you dont have a php.ini file then you will need to speak to your web hosts for the best way to do this. Sometimes its as easy as just creating a php.ini file with the correct settings but it depends on your host so you should speak to them.
