We try to make things as easy as possible for our customers here at Name Hero.

Specifically, we've optimized our entire managed cloud for WordPress to allow both our Shared and Reseller Hosting customers that ability to create and manage there sites without all the guesswork of some other web hosts.

In years past, customers had to create custom php.ini files in order to modify their WordPress upload limit, change their PHP version, and increase their memory limit.

For some WordPress beginners this can be very confusing. Heck, I've been doing this for almost two-decades and I think it's a pain to setup a custom php.ini file!

We've simplified this process by introducing PHP selector into all cPanel accounts.

If you're attempting to upload files on your new WordPress theme or are getting errors that you need to increase your upload size or memory limit, they can easily be solved by following these directions:

  1. Login to cPanel

  2. Click Select PHP Version

  3. From the drop-down menu, select your preferred php version and click Apply.

  4. You can choose extensions to add additional php extensions.

  5. You can also choose options to adjust your php values such as upload file size.

  6. From here, you can edit any values to best meet your WordPress installation:

Once you edit the values the changes go into effect immediately.

If you want to double check to make sure everything is in order, you can do so by creating a PHP info file.

To do this, upload a file in your home public_html directory called info.php. Inside of it, put this text:

You can then navigate to and verify all the settings took effect.

While we try to make this process as painless and easy as possible, you're always free to reach out to our Heroic Support team for further clarification!
