WP: exceeds the maximum upload size for this site

When you are trying to upload some big image or other type of file on wordpress, you can get this error:

File has failed to upload due to an error. This file exceeds the maximum upload size for this site
Maximum upload file size: 2MB.
(or some other value, but anyway smaller then your file you want to upload.

Here is one possible solution (it worked for me):

Open Notepad ++ or some other text editor you use.
Make new file with this content:

upload_max_filesize = 64M
post_max_size = 64M
max_execution_time = 300
file_uploads = On

file exceeds maximum upload size for site

In case you ned greater then 64 Mb, you can write bigger number, too.

Save that file as php.ini

Upload it to your wp-admin/ folder

Try upload that bigger file now.
