How to change the max file upload size for phpMyAdmin in Plesk

Here it is for others who wish to increase the upload limit from 2M to whatever you desire:

Change the folowing file: /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/php.ini

And the following value: “upload_max_filesize” & “post_max_size” From “2147483647” to “100M” (100M or whatever value you wish to set the cap to)

Per Razvancioiu (who is correct), you will then need to run the following commands to reset Apache for the changes to take effect:

/etc/init.d/psa stop
/etc/init.d/psa start
