XAMPP is a free and open source cross-platform web server solution stack package developed by Apache which allows a web application to be easily tested on the local web server. But when it comes to uploading files to the server using PHP it is a headache. In most of the cases, PHP servers do not allow to upload files bigger than 30 MegaByte (30MB).
Change the limit of file upload size:
Edit php.ini file to change the upload file size on ther server. To ensure that file upload works correctly, the post_max_size directive should be a little larger than the upload_max_filesize. For example, the following settings demonstrate how to set a file upload limit to 100 megabytes:
upload_max_filesize = 100M post_max_size = 101M
Now, What if your hosting provider does not allow you to access the “php.ini” file?
Steps to run Upload ProgressBar Project:
