    Hello,

    I am trying to upload a file that is only 29mbs + change. Anything less uploads ok, anything more the page just sits there, does not load the progress bar, does not do anything but timeout. But if I upload anything less then it immediately shows the progress bar and uploads the file.

    All the other threads talk about larger files, and changing the max size attribute which I have done.

    Any ideas?

    Hi Charles,

    Do you upload the file locally or to a remote server? What is the type of the file? If you upload the file to a library maybe there are some settings that prevent you from uploading files larger than a specific size?

    All the best,

    We host the server. So I am able to determine if there something that prevents it from accepting larger files. But there are other sites in the same file system that don't have this issue.

    I also am unfimiluar with what might be causing this which is why I'm pinging the forums :S

    Any sort of checks I can do?

    Hello Charles,

    In this case please check the following forum thread:

    http://www.sitefinity.com/devnet/forums/sitefinity-3-x/developing-with-sitefinity/uploading-videos-timeout.aspx

    It basically suggest to use the Files provider if the setting of Nolics streaming wouldn't work. I hope that helps.

    Hey all,

    Just wanted to share that because we were running IIS 7.5 on 2008 Server, we had to modify the request filter setting in IIS for the site. Changed the value there for the maximum size of a request length and that permitted the other settings and suggestions to actually become valid. If you're wondering why nothing else works? The request, the beginning of the process needs to be large enough.
