I just created my first WordPress site on my home server (which acts as remote server). I haven’t been able to upload any images to my site. At all. Every time I try, I get the error:
The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.
The funny thing is, when I first received this error, I went and changed all the php.ini files I could find to say:
upload_max_filesize = 64M
Not only that, but the Upload New Media page on my Dashboard specifically states:
Maximum upload file size: 64 MB.
Why would I get that error, if it’s not true, even according to WordPress?
I’ve been trying to find the answer to this for weeks. I’ve updated the php.ini, the wp-config file. phpinfo() checks out just fine. I restart all services after every change I try. I don’t see any errors in the error logs. I’ve tried big and small images – both jpg and png. I’ve tried numerous ways to upload – to the library, and with theme customizations. Everything gives me the same d*** error. I don’t even know if it’s a WordPress issue! Here is my setup:
Ubuntu Server 16.04
Using php-fpm if that makes a difference
