You can change some defaults through your theme. However, you can change things like file upload size (default is something ridiculous like 2M), and some other settings very easily by going to your Control Panel. Select php version. Click on Options. Here you can change many things such as upload file size. Select 32 or 64M. All done.
Until Next Time, Happy Blogging!
