Most of us know the frustration of trying to upload a file to our Joomla sites and getting the message that the file size is too big! The first place to try and solve this problem is look into, and possibly change, the upload limits in the PHP settings of your web hosting account - specifically "post_max_size" & "upload_max_filesize."

How to investigate and/or change the "post_max_size" & "upload_max_filesize" PHP settings of your Joomla site's web hosting account is what today's Maintenance Monday is all about.
