    I've found the solution, it's ok when modsecurity for apache is install

    1) vi /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
    2) search the text " SecRequestBodyLimit "
    3) increase the valor after it for incoming files (for exemple 15728640 //15MB)
    4) save your file
    5) restart apache

    It work :)

    I had the same issue.
    max_upload_size set at 20M
    max_post_upload set at 20M
    for both CLI and apache2 php.

    No mod Security.
    Checked all wordpress files and directives. No joy.

    I created a .htaccess file in the folder of the php file that was throwing the error.
    its total content is
    LimitRequestBody 20971520 (~~20M ) for me

    Saved, set the permissions to r,r,r and made the user the apache user.

    restarted Apache. Fixed.

    LimitRequestBody 0 gives you unlimited uploads.

    This is a handy way to override uploads for one folder and leave the rest alone. This will help avoid DOS attacks with large packets of data.
