how to increase phpmyadmin upload limit With apache2 and php5

installed you need to make three changes in the file

sudo gedit /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini

Search for entry post_max_size = 2M where you need to enter a larger number than the size of your database (15M in this case) i.e. 25M, next edit memory_limit and give a larger number than the one given to post_max_size. At last, edit the entry upload_max_filesize with a value smaller than post_max_size.

Starting from bigger values the order should go like this


Restart apache (for ex: sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart) and you are set.
