File size lmit - how to change?

**New site, first uploads, I tried to upload a file of 2.44 MB, and got a size error - To big.
So I went into Apache2 (Windows) setup directory and changed the file upload size llmit:

; http://php.net/upload-max-filesize

upload_max_filesize = 2M

upload_max_filesize = 4M

But I still got the file size too big error.

Hi @guthrie,

Our documentation provides some advice on this here:

Hi @guthrie,

…and you may have to restart your Apache server after making a change, depending on how your PHP is integrated with it.

thank you, I think I has already checked on all of these things.
I have to first now figure out a different error (I changed files_dir and it broke everything!).
