2 crucial steps to increase WordPress upload file size on Namecheap

Just discovered it takes 2 particular steps to change the WordPress settings on Namecheap’s web hosting, and it took me a while to find the answer. Hopefully this blog post will make it easier for you to find the answer here. By default, Namecheap allows for a maximum upload file size of 32MB.

Step #1 = create and edit a custom php.ini for your WordPress self-install

How to edit php.ini on shared servers


And in that php.ini, either modify or add these lines (for 64MB max file upload size):

post_max_size 64M
upload_max_filesize 64M

Step #2 = update the .htaccess file to use that custom php.ini you just updated

SuPHP directive for php.ini on shared servers


But, depending on your cPanel configuration (maybe?), you may not be able to view/edit a .htaccess file in the cPanel File Manager. I had to view/edit my .htaccess file via FTP. (cf. Web Hosting Tutorial: Uploading files for your website using FTP)

Redemption Point, a church for Fountain Valley and Westminster, California

Redemption Point Church is reaching people in the Fountain Valley and Westminster, California area, known as Little Saigon, particularly English-speaking Vietnamese Americans. Website http://redemptionpoint.us Sermon videos vimeo.com/user4397298

About Redemption Point via redemptionpoint.us/about

We are the English speaking offspring of the immigrants (mostly Vietnamese), who now find it is easier to express ourselves in English. Therefore we congregate to take a keenly look at God and how He is working in our midst. After all, if there is an eternal heaven or hell, wouldn’t that be the most important thing to consider?

As we look around, we see many fractured relationships: in family, between generations, among the churches, in different cultures – isolations in society. But the “Good News” (in which the Bible called it “Gospel”) is this: all can be (and will be) restored when God reconcile our broken relationship to Him.

Redemption Point worship services are on Sunday night 6pm at Coastal church on the corner of Slater and Ward in Fountain Valley, California.

A Christian Vision of Belonging: Race and Gender – ISAAC’s 6th Symposium

Invitation Letter from Young Lee Hertig


Bridging the Church and Academy To Transform Our Community

November 3-4, 2014 at Hillside Community Church 2241 N. Eastern Ave, LA

We are gearing up for one of the first Asian American and African American bilateral symposiums: “A Christian Vision of Belonging: Race and Gender,” on November 3-4, 2014. The keynote speaker is Willie James Jennings, Professor of Theology and Black Church Studies at Duke Divinity School.

Our many panelists include Rev Drs. Chip Murray (USC), Soong-Chan Rah (North Park Theological Seminary), Mark Whitlock, and Drs. Allen Yeh (Biola University), Charlene Jin Lee (Loyola Marymount), David Choi (Princeton Theological Seminary), Jonathan Tran (Baylor University), Joy Moore (Fuller Theological Seminary), Kay Higuera Smith (Azusa Pacific University), and Laura Mariko Cheifetz (Presbyterian Publishing). The workshop leaders include most of the panelists as well as local pastors from both Asian American and African American communities.

At our annual legacy banquet on the night of November 3rd, we will be honoring Bill Watanabe, the former Executive Director of Little Tokyo Service Center for over 33 years; Bill is the Asian American nonprofit guru. The backdrop visuals will be of Yuri Kochiyama, who was a close friend of Malcolm X and was beside him during his moments of last breath. In an early example of Asian American and African American bilateralism, Kochiyama mentored Dr. Donald Brown, who now serves as the LA Regional Center Director of Azusa Pacific University. He will share about her influence on his life. Rev Wendy Tajima will be also speaking at the banquet. Her cousin, Prof. Renee Tajima of UCLA, produced a documentary film about Yuri Kochiyama.

There are two links below: 1) registration; 2) a 2-minute promotional interview with Elder Oscar Owens, Kay Smith, and Soong-Chan Rah. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNOuCtiqvm8
