Cannot upload All-in-One WP Migration file to WordPress hangs at 28%


I have a WordPress website running on AWS (micro instance). I’ve downloaded All-in-One WP Migration and made a backup of this site.

  1. First I tried to upload the .wpress file again to my website. But my file size (545 mb) exceeds the maximum allowed 2 MB.

  2. Then I downloadeded the Increase Maximum Upload File Size plugin because I was too lazy to edit .htaccess or wp-config.php and I increase it to 1 GB.

  3. Although a warning is given that the hosting provider has set the maximum upload limit (in the Increase Maximum Upload File Size plugin), I can now upload my file, and before I couldn’t. But the process hangs at 28.78% as seen in the image:

  1. When I do the same on my localhost using MAMP I get the same hosting provider warning but here it does work fine.

  2. The site is run on AWS and I tried to manually modify .htaccess but this file is missing. I manually add it with this content:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index.php$ – [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

php_value upload_max_filesize 1000M
php_value post_max_size 1000M
php_value memory_limit 800M
php_value max_execution_time 900
php_value max_input_time 800`

Then I type in:

sudo service nginx restart

This doesn’t work either.

  1. So I add below code to my wp-config.php:

    @ini_set(‘upload_max_size’, ‘1000M’);
    @ini_set(‘post_max_size’, ‘1000M’);
    @ini_set(‘memory_limit’, ‘800M’);
    @ini_set(‘max_execution_time’, ‘900’);
    @ini_set(‘max_input_time’, ‘800’);

Then again:

sudo service nginx restart

This also doesn’t work.
