I have just upgraded one of my WordPress multi-site “network” installations to version 3.5. This all went smoothly, but when I tried to add a new image to my media library I got an error message that said…
‘Sorry, you have used all of your storage quota of 10mb’
I don’t recall ever setting a limit for my WordPress storage quota, and there was no such limit imposed by my website hosting company. So, here’s our solution to the problem.
It turns out that you can set a limit for each website within a WordPress network (a WordPress network, previously known as multi-site, allows a number of sites to use the same WordPress installation). If you have created the network yourself then you may well know this, but if you haven’t you might need some help resolving the problem.
How to increase my WordPress storage quota
1. Log in to your WordPress site and navigate to ‘My Sites’–>’Network Admin’–>’Dashboard’
2. Select ‘Settings’–>’Network Settings’
3. Find the ‘Site upload space’ field and increase the storage limit (or un-check the box to remove any limits – best done only if you have total control over all sites in your network)
4. Save changes
