How can I upload larger files with ASP.NET? by link9
Posted: 21 Feb 03 (Edited 21 Feb 03)

By default, the file size limit on uploads in ASP.NET is 4mb.  Most of the time, the default 4Mb is more than enough to upload files using the POST method in webforms. But sometimes more is needed. The following example shows how.

To upload larger files through HTTP, you can use a configuration setting in your application Web config file or your machine Web config file:

       <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="10000" />
           <deny users="?"/>

where "10000" is the max file size in Kbytes that you want to allow.

This example was scraped from the following source:

They reported it coming from a newsgroup post.

And special thanks to member, TerryDad2, for cleaning up the solution a bit to get the capitalization correct.

Happy Coding!
