Increase upload size in PHPMYADMIN on cPanel server

By default, phpmyadmin has a max upload size of 50 MiB. To increase this value on a cPanel server please do the following:

  1. Login to WHM as root
  2. Go to Server Configuration » Tweak Settings
  3. Click on PHP tab
  4. Update the values `max upload size` and `max POST size` to the max file size you need. (Values higher than 2047MB are not permitted.)
  5. Don't forget to update `max execution time` to a proper value (in seconds) according to your upload speed to avoid getting the upload process fails if it takes a longer time than the value already set in `max execution time`.
  6. Save
