Increase Sharpeoint Upload limit (what MS didn’t tell you)

8 06 2009

THIS ONLY WORKS FOR WINDOWS 2003 SERVERS WITH IIS 6.

IF YOU HAVE WINDOWS 2008 READ THE ADDENDUM POST ABOVE.

The instructions for each step are below :

Open Central Administration. Go to “Application Management”, then “Web Application General Settings”. Ensure you are on the correct web application and modify the “Maximum Upload Size” field.

2. Open IIS, find the appropriate website and open its properties. The timeout setting is on the Website tab and in the connections setting under “Http Connection Timeout”. I’d probably consider adding 120 seconds per extra 50 mb, more or less depending on your connection.

3. Edit C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\web.config

From :

[location path=”upload.aspx”]
[system.web]
[httpRuntime maxRequestLength=”2097151″ /]
[/system.web]
[/location]

To :

[location path=”upload.aspx”]
[system.web]
[httpRuntime maxRequestLength=”2097151″ ExecutionTimeout=”999999″/]
[/system.web[
[/location>]

Edit the web.config in the home directory of the IIS Site of your web application.

From :

[httpRuntime maxRequestLength=”51200″ /]

To :

[httpRuntime maxRequestLength=”51200″ executionTimeout=”999999″ /]
