File upload problem via Hostgator ftp. Size could be a problem?

#1 Post by Gadgets1st » 2020-06-26 22:19

Hi guys. I am encountering an annoying problem that prevents me from uploading a 53 MB file to a WordPress website (<name is irrelevant>), via Filezilla to a shared Hostgator server.
The image is a 53 MB large wallpaper. I first attempted to upload it via wp-admin and it said that the file is too large.
I then switched for Filezilla and I get 'File transfer failed' error.
I searched for a Filezilla file upload limit and that shouldn't be a problem, 53 MB isn't that big.
I also checked my router and it works fine. Just to be sure, I tried to upload with wired Internet, still no luck.
Anyone encountered this problem before? Could this be an IP restriction for uploading large files?

P.S.: I did upload two larger files last year, without any problems. The only difference, is that I was in a different country. Could this be a problem?
