These are what recruiters are constantly searching in high demand for in addition to DevOps. Don't forget that a minimum of an Associates Degree get's you past HR people and into the hands of IT Managers, IT Directors, etc. It's just too easy now-a-day's to get college education which is a rip off in some ways, but it's how society is structured unfortunately. It's better to have it then not to have it though.

Do not attend schools that are not regionally accredited in the US (also, take the time to find out if their is a lawsuit or restriction on accreditation for the school, your spending your money, invest in either a public university or college or reputable private school. Don't get scammed and become another victim of schools like ITT Tech (DO NOT attend any school that is not regionally accredited and holds only the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools: The Department of Education has sued to remove them as an accreditation body.
Don't be dumb. Do your research or just go to a public community college, college or university in your state!! You can also pick an accredited online school with a good reputation. If they advertise like crazy, probably not a good idea.

The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini

Ok. You set up Wordpress. You go to upload a theme. Bam! You get this error:

The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.

*Solution tested on Apache (Debian 8) Version 2.4.10

Now what? Don't even bother searching Google like crazy...it's already here! Optionally, you can do this after deploying a template on Google or AWS (Haven't check Azure) and save yourself the headache.

1. Launch a Google Cloud Platform (Wordpress) VM - Use the Google Click-to-Deploy version.
Note: This will also work with anything that you install on CentOS, Ubuntu, SUSE or RHEL for Apache installations Only (NGINX go Here: https://goo.gl/xeGbSE)

2. Post Installation. Change the configuration with the vi editor under the php path under /etc/php5

4. username@servername:/var/www/html/wp-admin$ sudo vi /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini

When you enter vi. You search with / command (key next to shift) "/upload_max_" (don't put the "). Comment out the line above (you never know...) and then write to the file and save it.

;upload_max_filesize = 2M
upload_max_filesize = 50M
post_max_size = 50M
:wq!
5. username@servername:/var/www/html/wp-admin$ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
6. Dance for freaking joy!! Now Envato Themes are worth it. https://themeforest.net/
7. Setup DNS and then Encrypt with SSL from Let's Encrypt (Digital Ocean/Let's Encrypt): https://goo.gl/XH6Ex5
8. Don't forget to secure your servers with a snapshot (Google Cloud Platform, Azure or AWS) and then scan and secure weaknesses with either a DISA STIGS or a CIS Benchmark. Be careful out there. It's the wild...wild...west for those that take security for a joke.
