Addendum to increasing file uploads

8 06 2009

So the post below works only with Windows 2003 and IIS6.
Unfortunately for me, I have windows 2008 and IIS7.
However microsoft does have a KB article on why this happens:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/942074/

Apparently IIS7 has a hard limit of 30mb uploads.
Who knew? Microsoft what the hell man? We aren’t mind readers, way to let us know!

Read to the bottom of the KB article and you will see an obscure entry down there referring to system.webserver entry you must include in your web.config file.
WOW. Thank god i have no life, otherwise i would have never found it!
