I am getting this error when I am trying to upload a backup of my site (.sql) in phpmyadmin. The size of file is 15 MB and after zipping it, its 9 MB.

Can anyone help me out with this.

I have already changed - max_execution_time = 8000 max_input_time = 8000 post_max_size = 8G upload_max_filesize = 2G

You might edited wrong php.ini file. Also, check the value of memory_limit.

It's also better if you can tell us more about the environment (E.g: RAM?)

I am using it on VPS. and the file that i edited was located at /etc/php5/fpm/php.ini. The specs of VPS are 1 GB RAM and 30 GB space. – Amit Rawat Dec 16 '13 at 6:09
memory_limit = 8G – Amit Rawat Dec 16 '13 at 6:11
Which browser are you using? That can be caused by some browser extensions (E.g: Firebug in Firefox). Can u clear cache in browser, disable plugins one by one then try again? This might not relate to PHP/MySQL configurations. – Michael Bui Dec 16 '13 at 10:08
Idid what you said but its still not working – Amit Rawat Dec 17 '13 at 6:36
