OSX El Capitan local install Maximum upload file size: 2 MB But php.ini set to 64M

Question

Brand new site. Not MU. No matter what I do, I cannot get a file uploaded that exceeds 2MB. I’m running a localhost server with WordPress 4.3.1

I’ve modified both relevant settings in the the site’s php.ini as:

upload_max_filesize = 64M
post_max_size = 64M

However, I’m still getting the message when trying to upload a plugin that’s 2.5M

The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in
php.ini.

Also, when I go to “Media > Add New”, I get the message:

Maximum upload file size: 2 MB.

My htaccess file is the default and has no mention of max upload size.

What gives? Is it a requirement to restart anything after modifying the site’s php.ini? If so, I could not find a restart command on my phpmyadmin panel.
