Change The Max WordPress Upload Size

If you’re looking to change the maximum size allowed for file uploads into WordPress, the PHP option is not the only item that needs to be changed.  You also need to change some NGINX options as well.

Because of this, we have a dedicated option for changing the Maximum upload filesize in WordPress.

You can find it at the bottom of the TWEAKS tab for your site.
