when trying to upload an import on WordPress on XAMPP local to other environment some times following errors comes :
Warning: POST Content-Length of 8978294 bytes exceeds the limit of 8388608 bytes in Unknown on line 0
8388608 bytes is 8M,this is the default limit in PHP.
Update your post_max_size in php.ini to a larger value.
upload_max_filesize sets the max file size that a user can upload while post_max_size sets the maximum amount of data that can be sent via a POST in a form.
So you can set upload_max_filesize to 1 meg, which will mean that the biggest single file a user can upload is 1 megabyte, but they could upload 5 of them at once if the post_max_size was set to 5.
You can find php.ini file from this path. C:\xampp\php or from xampp folder.
So just set these in php.ini:
upload_max_filesize = 1000M; post_max_size = 1000M;
It will work fine after that.
