MOSS: document-library file upload limitation


When we created shared folder for our business users, I had a doubt about the file upload limitations which might occur when our users upload files. When i googled for the same found that the default size is set to be 50MB (maxRequestLength="51200"). and to increase the limit we just need to configure the xml file in the following location

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

Config file:
<location path="upload.aspx">
<httpRuntime maxRequestLength="2097151" />


Hope it helps

Fauzi, as far as I remember, sharepoint 2003 used to have a setting in configuration that said Maximum size for File Upload. Do you mean they removed this setting in MOSS 2007 and have to manually change it. Thats bad! maybe sharepoint 2010 will fix it.

In Sharepoint 2003 it was a configurable setting, upload limit. Moss doesn't have it? Strange Indeed. Maybe Sharepoint 2010 will have it again. I don't like manual editing. Good I am not administrating any more.
