PHP Question

How to increase Maximum Upload size in cPanel?

I am using cPanel of my website to increase maximum upload file size for wordpress media uploads. I have used the codes(found out from google) for this purpose wp-config.php, .htaccess but nothing is working. In my cPanel, there is no service for php configuration editor under software / services section or anywhere else. Please help what should I do?

My .htaccess shows this code:

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>
# END WordPress


I tried by placing the code:

php_value upload_max_filesize 20M
php_value post_max_size 20M


inside and outside # blocks, it gives 500 error rather.

Answer

I have found the answer and solution to this problem. Before, I did not know that php.ini resides where in wordpress files. Now I have found that file in wp-admin directory where I placed the code

post_max_size 33M
upload_max_filesize 32M

then it worked. It increases the upload file size for my worpdress website. But, it is the same 2M as was before on cPanel.
