Why can I not upload a file on cPanel? #

When you first set up your account or an account for a client you may come across an error when trying to upload a file on cPanel using File Manager.

The error message you receive can vary between web browsers.

To fix this is issue you simply need to increase the upload_max_filesize on cPanel. This can be done in one of two ways depending on your server configuration.

  1. Enter Select PHP Version in the Software section and click on the options tab and increase the upload limit.
  2. Enter MultiPHP INI Editor, again in the Software section, choose the domain name you wish to edit and again increase the upload limit.

You should now be able to upload your files on cPanel without any error messages.
