Large files won’t upload with my task

The maximum file-size you are able to attach to a task is dependent on your web hosting configuration. Some web servers may only have a 2mb maximum, but to be certain you will need to confirm with your web host and discuss the possibility of increasing the limit.

The first thing you’ll need to do is confirm if this is the case. The easiest way is to install and activate the free WP System plugin, go to Tools -> WP System, click on Server Environment and look for Upload max filesize. The value shown there is the largest single file size your server will allow you to upload.

If you don’t want to get your web host involved in assisting to increase that value, you could try one of these methods.

Alternatively if you have access to make changes to your web hosting configuration you will need to edit php.ini and increase the upload_max_filesize and post_max_size to something larger. You may also want to increase the max_execution_time so that the larger files do not cause a time-out during the upload.
