    Default The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini

    Trying to upload a plugin called Sociable that i saw you mention in another post Dan. It's over 4MB and when trying to install it, I get an error message as I do with another plugin too, saying that it's too big.

    The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.
    I tried contacting Go Daddy for them to alter my php.ini file for me and they gave me a new file and advised me to change it from 2M to 64M or something. Still hasn't fixed the issue unfortunately.

    What do you recommend?

    Unzip it and install the folder via FTP.

    Easy as. I did this with another one a while back but it didn't work. This time it worked for two plugins I had problems with. I think making sure the folder being uploaded with a dash '-' in between each word did the trick. Thanks mate.

    Dan do you have a video that shows how to do this? I am having the very same issue and my host support claims that they have increased file permissions to 64 MB.

    It's been 4 years since this was mentioned and I never saw a reason to shoot a video since this wasn't related to Socrates.

    Of course there are loads of them on Google.
