I am having troubles increasing the size of the "Maximum upload file size" in wordpress running on IIS7 - FastCGI that comes with Plesk 9.5.  I have tried to modify the php.ini file located in C:\WIndows\php.ini and changing the value 'upload_max_filesize' to a higher size and nothing.

I have also tried opening IIS Manager selecting the website and double clicking on 'ASP' then changing the 'Maximum Request Entity Body Limit'  As well as adding

<system.web>
      <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="102400" />
</system.web>

to the web.config

This article goes into more detail than the WP site. I also used the php.ini which did nothing, after following the instructions on this site, I was able to upload the size I set.

Also creating a php file called info.php in the root directory of WordPress and adding this code:
<?php
phpinfo();
?>
View this page and look at the "Loaded Configuration File" to make sure you are editing the correct php.ini file
