How to set max limt of File Upload in

1 comment
Many times I faced the same problem with all my applications, that is Max size of file to be uploaded to server.

By default, the maximum size limit of a file to be uploaded to a server using the ASP.NET FileUpload control is 4MB. You cannot upload anything that is larger than this limit.

If you wants to upload a file more the size of 4 MB which is by default, you have to make some changes in the application's web.config:

<httpRuntime maxRequestLength="xxx" />

Below is the small description of the parameters attributes.

maxRequestLength - Attribute limits the file upload size for ASP.NET application. This limit can be used to prevent denial of service attacks (DOS) caused by users posting large files to the server. The size specified is in kilobytes. As mentioned earlier, the default is "4096" (4 MB). Max value is "1048576" (1 GB) for .NET Framework 1.0/1.1 and "2097151" (2 GB) for .NET Framework 2.0.

executionTimeout - Attribute indicates the maximum number of seconds that a request is allowed to execute before being automatically shut down by the application. The executionTimeout value should always be longer than the amount of time that the upload process can take.
