I'm using wordpress 3.0 with buddypress.

I need to enlarge the file size that is being uploaded from the media section in the admin menu.

We have tried many ways including the methods from this link but nothing made it larger than a 1 mega.

Is there a different way to do it?

Where is your website hosted ? Did you check with your hosting company ? – mike23 Jul 27 '11 at 9:16
As Mike says it could be down to your host... you can make as may changes as you like but they may ultimately control the size of file uploads. – Vince Pettit Jul 27 '11 at 11:22
The server is local, we have full control over it. other wordpress sites are installed on it and each and every one of them shows a different upload size, some 1 others 2. what should be done on the server except the info that we've written? – peroxide Jul 28 '11 at 11:38

If you are using multisite make sure you set "Max upload file size" to some higher limit.

Network Admin -> Settings -> Network settings -> Upload settings -> Max upload file size
