Default Perfect ubuntu server (apache) + Wordpress and php max_upload_size


I've followed the Perfect Ubuntu Server (apache) tutorial, and got my server up and running.

After installing Wordpress and trying to upload some plugins (the smaller one works), I get the error 'the uploaded file are larger than max_upload_filesize in php.ini'.
I have increased max_upload_filesize in /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini to 30M (the file I'm trying to upload is about 3mb). I also found a tutorial with the same issue here, which says to set MaxRequestLen to 15728640 (15mb, I used 30mb) in /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/fcgid.conf.

I did reboot the server after this, to ensure all involved services would restart.

I'm still getting the same issue. Does anyone got any tips?

Increase the value in the file /etc/php5/cgi/php.ini as well and restart apache.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
