For this you have to either contact to your hosting provider to do that or if you have the access you can do that yourself.
How Uploading media increase the size limit WordPress?
upload_max_filesize = 64M
post_max_size = 64M
max_execution_time = 500
max_input_time = 500
By adding the above code to php.ini or phprc file and replace with the default. That’s all but before you doing that consider how much you want to increase and really it is required or not?
I have done this for one of my client who needs to upload more than 7MB in size images for her photography site http://crushonphotography.com/ and working fine and she is happy with uploading media now. The site is hosted at https://www.dreamhost.com/ I used the ftp login and find the “.php” folder. Inside this folder you will get the the php version file i.e. 5.3 or 5.4 see the picture bellow. What I have done just open the 5.3 folder and download the phprc file then rename the phprc to phprc old now add the code and again upload that into the same destination Enjoy.
If you do not have the php.ini or phprc file access please contact your provider to increase your uploading media size to your desire uploading media size.
