How to Fix Regular PHP Issues for WordPress-WordPress QuickFix

You already know that we have taken a plan to make a series post on WordPress QuickFix so that our beloved readers that means you won’t face any silly problem while you are developing your project with WordPress. 

As a part of that plan, today, I’ve prepared a tutorial guide with relevant screenshots on several topics, including increase max input vars limit, increase upload max file size, increase post max size, increase max execution time, and increase max input time in PHP.

To make it more workable, I’ve shown here more than one way to customize these configurations. After reading this article, you will be able to resolve it from both the .htaccess and the php.ini file. You just need to edit or create those files and write 2-4 lines of code that I am going to give you below.

So let’s check all of these in detail and let me know your feedback, whether it is helpful or not.

Troubleshooting steps

If the applied changes are not affecting and the error notification is still appearing, please follow below steps.

  • Duplication of php.ini file: It is possible another php.ini file exists in your host’s directories (for example, inside wp-includes directory) which affects the above values. Check your host directories.
  • Contact Host Provider: If you can not find the php.ini or .htaccess file or the applied changes are not working as expected, it is best to contact the hosting provider. They’re the first people that can help you further about this issue.
