Works if you follow instructions

This plugin is simple and effective. It does work for my 2 sites in different hosting companies. What most people failed to read is that the plugin adds a side menu in the admin panel instead of opening a SETTINGS option in the panel.
The other confusing mistake from the author: the plugin name is “Increase Max Upload Filesize” but when it’s installed it’s called “Upload Max File Size” and the side panle menu is called “Max File Size” so it’s NOT getting 5 stars until this gets fixed…
Please be CONSISTENT with names!

It is working!

It is REALLY working. Even I installed at MultiSite, it works too.
I found many users put 1 star, I think they missed out the setting. Let’s me explain the setting here to prevent new users found no way.

After installing, your upload filesize is “zero”, hence you need go to LEFT menu and search for “Max File Size”, click it. Then see “Increase Upload Maximum File Size” and put the numbers which you like, example 64MB is 67108864 bytes, so you put “67108864” at the column and submit. That’s all.
