Uploading anything over 100MB times out in WordPress


I’ve changed settings in custom.ini and even modified nginx.conf and main.conf, still times out.

# custom.ini
upload_max_filesize = 1000M
post_max_size = 1000M
max_input_time = 6000
max_execution_time = 3000
memory_limit 2048M

# nginx.conf and main.conf
client_max_body_size 1000m;

Am I missing anything else?



Did you set the limit in customs.ini as well?


And add:

upload_max_filesize = 1000M
post_max_size = 1000M

After that restart Nginx and Apache: ‘ee site restart DOMAIN.COM’.

And the uploading should start to work.

Note: If you are using CloudFlare then the upload limit in your case might be 100mb by default.


Still didn’t work. According to Cloudflare, 100mb limit only applies when you have the orange cloud icon on for free plans. I have that disabled and have Lets Encrypt on.
