WordPress Advanced Configurations

Sometimes, you may need to add a bit more juice to WordPress by editing PHP configurations. For example, PHP defaults uploads at a maximum of 2 mb. That is to encourage better performance with smaller files sizes; however, often times you may want to download and install a plugin that exceeds this limit.
