I am getting this error when trying to upload an import on WordPress on my XAMPP local dev environment:
Warning: POST Content-Length of 8978294 bytes exceeds the limit of 8388608 bytes in Unknown on line 0
I changed the
8388608 bytes is 8M, the default limit in PHP. Update your
post_max_size in php.ini to a larger value.
upload_max_filesize sets the max file size that a user can upload while
post_max_size sets the maximum amount of data that can be sent via a POST in a form.
So you can set
upload_max_filesize to 1 meg, which will mean that the biggest single file a user can upload is 1 megabyte, but they could upload 5 of them at once if the
post_max_size was set to 5.
