Description

I am attempting to test a site locally using XAMPP...everything is going great pn the install, except when I try to upload a new theme. I get this error message:

Warning: POST Content-Length of 88112507 bytes exceeds the limit of 8388608 bytes in Unknown on line 0

I attempted to remedy this by adding the following lines to the wp-config file:

define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '900M' );

I logged out and back in again. No change.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Phil

It's not memory_limit, it's post_max_size value you need to increase.

Thank you Sergey. I just tried your suggestion but there is no change. Perhaps I should place the line in a specific place in wp-config?

Thank you again. I'll search for a 4.0 solution. I haven't seen a dialogue regarding this issue that is newer than vers 3.5 yet. I'll keep looking.

wp-config.php would be too late, see a comment on php.net. Try setting it via php.ini or .htaccess.
