Use the following steps if you are unable to upload a document due to an error stating the file is too big for the server.

Steps

  1. On the server and in IIS, stop the WebDocsAppPool app pool and the Webdocs website.
  2. Make a backup copy of the web.config file (found at C:\INETPUT\WEBDOCSITE\
  3. Edit the web.config file – making changes to the following two XML keys:

    <requestFiltering>

    <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength=""/>

    </requestFiltering>

    And

    <httpRuntime maxRequestLength=""/>

    NOTE: the second key is commented out, so you will need to remove the comments to activate.

    The first key you need to specify the size limit in bytes, the second key is KB.

  4. Save the changes and go back to IIS and start the WebDocsAppPool app pool and the Webdocs website.
