Error: Uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize

The error:

The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.

This error occurs when your webhost or server limits the upload file size.

The Solution

In order to fix the error, you’ll need to increase the uploaded maximum file size limit by reaching out your web hosting provider. If you’re familiar with server management, you can change the upload_max_filesize value directly from the php.ini file. Please, refer to this guide to learn more about this.

The other option is to manually install the plugin using File Transfer Protocol (FTP). This guide explains more: Manually update/install the premium plugin.
