It seems that the error is not from PHP this is Nginx error I suggest that you can update the client_max_body_size from the configuration file by the next steps 

  1. use SSH connection to connect to your server
  2. go to /etc/nginx/sites-available using this command
    cd /etc/nginx/sites-available
  3. see which config file is using probably it will be named with the domain name you are using
  4. consider it's called “default” so you can run this command to edit it 
    sudo nano default (sudo nano domain_name)
  5. then between the server { … } add client_max_body_size 64M;


server {.....client_max_body_size 64M;}

that's all, good luck

Hi Joseph,
I am using laravel 5.4 with PHP 7.4. Trying to upload 6 mb file after converting into base64 from from frontend angular using laravel API getting 413 error. Changed nginx conf settings set 120M also changed php.ini settings.
upload_max_filesize 100M;
post_max_size 100M;
memory_limit 120M;
still getting the same error. what could be the reason.

Have you changed the client_max_body_size? in the nginx.conf?

server {.....client_max_body_size 64M;}

Yes, I already changed it.

Have you restarted the Nginx server? or Apache2?

Yes, after changing the Nginx setting restarted the Nginx server and after changing the PHP settings restarted the apache server.
