Increase post_max_size limit in cPanel

There are certain scenarios in which you may need to make changes to your PHP configuration. Specifically, you may need to edit a file on your server called php.ini, and to increase the post_max_size limit.

While we do not allow global changes to the PHP.ini configurations on our servers , per account PHP configuration changes can be made from cPanel by following these steps:

1) Log into cPanel

2) Look for the SOFTWARE section and click on Select PHP version

Select and Edit PHP in cPanel
cPanel > Software > Select PHP Version

3) In the new window click on the Options button

4) Here you can locate the post_max_size and enter the value that you require.

PHP max inputs

Check your script, plugin, or theme’s documentation (or an on-screen error message) to find the correct value.

5) Once you’ll do any change, please do a left-hand side click anywhere outside the dropdown or text input box. If the change was successful, you will see a green box with a message which will confirm that the change has been applied.

The PHP Selector is not included by default in cPanel and might be missing from your account if you are hosting with a different web host. All BrickellHost customers should see the Select PHP Version section in their hosting account’s cPanel.
