Windows 7 - 50MB Upload Limit HELP!

Asked By j on 27-Feb-07 02:45 PM
I am having a problem with the 50mb upload limit on my MOSS 2007
Users get this error.
The form submission cannot be processed because it exceeded the maximum
length allowed by the Web administrator. Please resubmit the form with less

i followed all the steps to fix it here:

In order to upload files larger than the default 50 MB, you have to make the
following configuration changes:
1.	In SharePoint 3.0 Central Adminisration, Application Management tab, and
Web application general settings configure the Maximum upload size to a
maximum of 2047 MB.
2.	In Internet Information Services on the properties of the virtual server
increase the Connection Timeout to greater than default 120 seconds depending
on the time to upload large files in your environment for example, 360
3.	Configure the web.config for the _layouts web.config with
On the SharePoint server change C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft
Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\web.config with an
executionTimeout appropriate for the file size you are uploading.
An example is included below.
from: <location path="upload.aspx"> <system.web> <httpRuntime
maxRequestLength="2097151" /> </system.web> </location> to:
executionTimeout="999999" maxRequestLength="2097151" /> </system.web>

and i restarted but it still dosent work and i get the origional error.

Does anyone have any ideas.  this is a big problem for me

are you sure it is refering to the size of the content, there are
limits on the length of the URL string when uploading content as well.
That would be more of a browser issue than a SharePoint issue. I would
think that limit is 255, but I know some features such as web
folders / views only allow 180 characters I believe.

Not in a thread. No quote. Meaningless title.

How are we to know what the "same problem" is ?

With the new installation of MOSS 2007 on Windows Server 2008 you might run into a slight bump when trying to upload large files – to be more precise – files larger than 28 MB. Even though you’ve increased the maximum upload limit in SharePoint central administration, the upload still doesn’t work. Here are some symptoms that I received:

Page cannot be found error in Internet Explorer when trying to upload to MOSS document library through “Upload” button

Document not displaying in document library after uploading with “Upload multiple files” button even though the upload went to 100%

Windows delayed write failed when trying to upload document through Explorer view. After the error the file appears in document library, but it has a file size 0.

The error is not in SharePoint, the error is in IIS7 which limits the upload to 28 MB. To remove this limitation I’ve followed instructions from the KB article:

Error message when you try to upload a large file to a document library on a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site: “Request timed out”

Add the following lines at the end of your web’ application’s web.config file – just before the </configuration> closing tag:
