Troubleshooting Notes:

If when uploading you get this error: “the uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini”
This means you servers max upload size is smaller then it should be. Most hosts can help you increase this setting and we highly suggest going that route. Else if you can’t increase the max upload size of your php settings then you can upload via FTP (SEE BELOW)
