To change the maximum allowed import CSV file size:

  • find your php.ini file;
  • find the “upload_max_filesize” parameter (additionally, check ‘post_max_size’ too);
  • replace the existing value with a bigger one;
  • restart your MySQL and Apache server;
  • reload import page.

Besides, increase the execution time to avoid timeout issue.

As for the MySQL configuration, perform the following steps:

  • go to the importexport_importdata table;
  • find the ‘max_allowed_packet’ Mysql parameter;
  • it should be 1.5 times greater than the size of your import CSV file.

Now, you can upload a CSV file of any size to your Magento 2.
