  2. Under Performance settings you will need to increase both upload_max_filesize and post_max_size limits.
    To adjust the maximum post size, enter a value into the select box by left clicking first.
    For example for 20 Megabytes enter "20M", for 64 Megabytes enter "64M"

  3. Click OK to save.
