Exceed Maximum File Size error

  Asked By: Rico    Date: Oct 07    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2397

I received a 'Form submission...Exceeded Maximum length' error when
trying to upload a PDF file to my SharePoint site. I read all the
information on this post and even Googled this error. Most of the posts
told me to change the following in my web.config file:

<httpRuntime maxRequestLength="51200" />

I'm assuming they are referring to the web.config file located in the
Config file of my 12 HIVE. I changed the amount to "200000" and then
ran an IISRESET and I still cannot upload my file. Is there anything
else I need to do?

The web.config for your application is in inetpub\wss\virtual
directories\<name>. Simply look in IIS manager directory properties for
that app, it will show you the full path. You can also set the Web
timeout in IIS Manager - the default is 120 seconds. You should also
check the maximum  file upload size  for that web  app in Central Admin
