Have you ever tried uploading an image to your WordPress site and run into the following error:

Looking at what the error means, is basically a PHP limit which sez you not allowed to upload files bigger than 2MB.

As per google, it means the following(Basically the same):

The default values for PHP will restrict you to a maximum 2 MB upload file size. On the settings page for the upload module, Drupal calculates and displays the maximum file size that you can set based upon two PHP settings: ‘post_max_size’ and ‘upload_max_filesize’.

To resolve the issue, do the following:

-ssh into your instance and navigate to the php.ini file. The path to my file was the following

/etc/php.ini

Using a text editor, open the file:

sudo vim /etc/php.ini

Locate the following:

 

; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
; https://php.net/upload-max-filesize
upload_max_filesize = 2M

 

Edit the “upload_max_filesize = 2M” and change this to your desired size as seen by the change I made below:

; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
; https://php.net/upload-max-filesize
upload_max_filesize = 10M

Save the change and exit the text editor.

Restart your webserver just for restart sake.

Attempt uploading the file again and boom, it should work now.
