If you had created a swap partition, you can't increase the size of it. However, you can create an additional swap file on the disk and use it.

Here are instructions for it,

You can handle swap in many ways. Worst case scenario make a file (dd), then format it (mkswap), then mount it (swapon). Not quite efficient, but should in theory be functional. "swapon -s" to see what's current used.

mkswap
swapon
swapoff
