So now the next thing we want to do is we want to edit our php ini fle. So I’m just going to do that the easy way using Notepad. And so, I’m going to open again, let’s see… program files, Bitnami stack 4 and then php and we have to say All Documents or all files or we won’t see it. And then I want to open up php ini right here.

I’m just going to change that to 100 and then let’s see, what was the other one? The other one was change the upload max size from 2 Mb to 100 MB so again, find this, find next. Okay and that’s going to be 100 MB and we’re just going to save this, file, save.
