    Can anyone give me a step-by-step guide here ? I searched it on google and I ended up an error.
    PS I have no background about HTML?/PHP whatsoever

    some plugin can do that for you, but after that it depend than the host allowed to up the size limit

    or add you file directly with the server FTP is really easy, use like fillezilla with your informations, for the port its "21"

    If this doesn't work, ask the host to change it for you.

    Depending on the host you are using, you would need to create a php.ini file on your root folder ( or edit /etc/php.ini ) and add/change the following:
    Code:
    memory_limit = 512M
    upload_max_filesize = 256M
    post_max_size = 256M
    
    This Wordpress plugin also claims to do the same but I have not tested it.

    If you have access to WHM, you can also go on tweak settings and search for upload.

    If you have access to ini.php you have others explaining to you how to do it. If not, the only thing you can do contact the support to lift your upload limit.

    If they refuse for security reasons, you need to change your host.

    Contact support staffs and tell them to change these settings. Should take about 20 seconds.

    Create a php.ini file with this settings:

    And place this php.ini file inside your /wp-admin/ folder through FTP and you are ready to go :D
