Request Entity too large when uploading themes in wordpress

So i came across this one the other day when uploading a theme that was only about 1 meg to a wordpress site that i run on a nginx server.

I checked the php.ini and the max upload size it was set to 16meg, so it was not that. I found that it was a NGINX setting causing this issue.

You have to add this bit to your server file for the wordpress site: client_max_body_size 20M;

See the code below for the full server file for a wordpress site running on nginx.

Edit: also remember to restart nginx when applying this change! otherwise it will have no effect. service nginx restart

Looking for the kruxor minecraft server mc.kruxor.com? we have migrated it to... icekraft.com if you want to play on there just connect to play.icekraft.com:25535 or mc.kruxor.com should also still work.
