To fix the issue, you can increase PHP Upload Limit

The maximum upload file size of a single attachment is either the post_max_size or upload_max_filesize, whichever is smaller. The default PHP values are 8 MB for post_max_size, and 2 MB for upload_max_filesize.

You can change these two values in you server's php.ini file or your Joomla root folder's .htacces file, depending on your server's configration.

1. To increase these values in the php.ini file find the following lines and increase the values:

upload_max_filesize = 20M
post_max_size = 20M

2. To increase these values in the Joomla root folder's .htacces file add the following lines at the end of the file:

php_value upload_max_filesize 20M
php_value post_max_size 21M
