Increase Blog Import Limit of WordPress - Free

Here is two solutions to increase blog import limit of WordPress. By default, many web hosts have put 2mb import file limit for WordPress. If your blog is less than 2mb then you can easily import your WordPress blog but on the other if WordPress xml files which are more than 2MB in size you cannot import your WordPress Blog File.

Here i have two proper solutions to change the Import size limit of self hosted WordPress blog. Yes! You can change 2MB import limit of WordPress to 8MB, 16MB, 32MB, 64MB or even 320MB.

First Solution to Increase Blog Import Limit of WordPress

Change the following parameters to your php.ini file (can be located at public_html folder)

php_value upload_max_filesize 2M
php_value post_max_size 2M
php_value max_execution_time 200
php_value max_input_time 200

If you dont know either php.ini file exists or not in your domain root folder (public_html) then simple create a php.ini file, edit in Notepad and copy-paste above given values and upload in public_html folder

Second Solution to Increase Blog Import Limit of WordPress

Paste below given code in .htaccess file of your WordPress blog

# BEGIN WordPress
#Change upload limits
php_value memory_limit 320M
php_value post_max_size 320M
php_value upload_max_filesize 320M
php_value max_execution_time 6000
#Change upload limits end

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
# END WordPress
