How to increase PHP memory limit in DirectAdmin

To change upload size in DirectAdmin you need to edit php.ini

Firstly you need to find your php.ini. A new and easy trick to find your php.ini would be to ask php itself what it's using, eg:

/usr/local/bin/php --ini | grep 'Loaded Configuration File'

If you're running the default version of CLI php, your php.ini will be located at:


Edit php.ini. Search for Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.

upload_max_filesize = 2M

Change the 2M to whatever new value you want. If no "memory_limit" found, add the following line at the end of php.ini

memory_limit = 128M; /* Change the 128M to your needs */Save file.

Restart Apache. Consider that this setting may also be related:

Maximum size of POST data that PHP will accept.

post_max_size = 8M

Also some RoundCube versions have limits set in the file


So be sure to increase them there as well, if they're set.
