Change maxsize for upload in 7.5?


This is maby a stupid and simple question but I can't get it to work.

I am trying to upload a 40 MB file and I get an error in the media manager uploader saying that it is to big. I have changed all requestsize to a very high value but still gets the error.

Are there any other places this can be set?
I get the error locally so there are no timeout from the iis.

You need to both changed maxAllowedContentLength and maxRequestLength

Worked for me:

- Change maxAllowedContentLength to 2147483648 (2GB)

- Find httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" and change it to

Add the following code to your web.config, it works on my end.

And also note that maxAllowedContentLength is in bytes while maxRequestLength is in Kilobytes. Those need to be matched or the lesser one will be effective.
