If you are getting a “The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini” error while uploading a theme, plugin, or file in WordPress, it is because the default max upload file size for WordPress is set at 2MB. If you are using cPanel with GoDaddy (or any other hosting provider), follow our tutorial to increase the max upload file size.

1. Log into your cPanel and go to Select PHP Version under the Software section.
