    Hi everyone,

    I have developed an web page in asp.net which lets users to upload files to server. If the file size is less than 5mb, it works fine. But whenever the file size increases more than 5mb i mean to 10mb or 25mb, it does not work. Can anybody help me out of this problem

    Raise a ticket - it might be the .NET config on the server which limits upload size.

    Hi Tam,

    22MB is the maximum upload limit on Window's Server. So you can't upload file more than 22MB.

    The other possibility is you're getting a script timeout error. In ASP you change Server.ScriptTimeout = #seconds. Not sure what it is for .NET.

    This is not an issue with Jodohost. If you are using ASP.NET than that's the problem. There is a 4 MB cap by default and you can change this cap by editing your web.config

    <httpRuntime executionTimeout="1800" maxRequestLength="400000" />

    This allows 400 MB file upload.

    pakoda, thanks for that - I didn't know there was a web.config setting as well as the server-wide setting for uploads.

    tauseef, I suggest you try uploading a big file yourself and see if there is an error message returned by the browser.
