Increase phpmyadmin import file size limit


I'd like to increase the import file size limit for phpmyadmin.


The import size limit of phpmyadmin is the file upload size limit of your php configuration, so the most direct method of increasing this limit is to increase the upload limit in your php.ini file.

If you have shell access with root privileges, (or high enough privileges,) you can follow these steps in the terminal to increase this limit:

  • find your php.ini file if you don't know its location, you can find it by the shell command "whereis php.ini"
  • open your php.ini file and search for the line that contains "upload_max_filesize". It may look something like "upload_max_filesize = 2M"
  • change this to the size that you need, e.g. "upload_max_filesize = 8M"
  • you may need to restart your apache server to see the change


Note that by performing this change, the upload limit of all php scripts, not only phpmyadmin will be increased.
