I'm using amazon web services to host my Ubuntu Lamp stack and I'm new to this (of course).
I installed LAMP and wordpress to use for my website using this tutorial:
I have completed this and everything seems to be running smoothly. I have access to the wordpress dashboard and I am attempting to upload a theme I purchased. Now when I go to upload the theme I get this error:
The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.
So I'm trying to add a
php.ini file that increases the max upload size, however when I try to move the file into the
/var/www/wp-admin directory I get this error:
Error: /var/www/wp-admin/php.ini: open for write: permission denied Error: File transfer failed
I am using an EC2 instance on AWS, Host: my ip address, Username: ubuntu, no password and port 22
Any idea what may need to be done here? I have tried numerous ideas from Googling this issue.
