Subject Re: LimitRequestBody directive for HTTP response 413 error
Date Thu, 13 Jan 2005 00:18:01 GMT
Thanks Jeff. I already search and replace PostSizeLimit="10000000" with PostSizeLimit="204800000"
(200MB), but I still cannot upload a huge file > 10MB. 
The interesting thing is I couldn't even get HTTP 413 response error anymore, and the page
just display "Page cannot be displayed" after uploading a file for 30 seconds.

Am I missing something here? please advise more. thanks!!

yes... you or somebody else has configured the WebSphere plug-in to
reject request bodies which are larger than that 10000000 bytes... 
for your file upload of size > 10000000 bytes, this value for
PostSizeLimit will result in the WebSphere plug-in returning a 413
error to the web server (in your case, IHS), and the web server will
relay the 413 error back to the client

That web server is IBM HTTP Server, not Apache. The "Apache/1.3.26"
portion of the server string indicates the level of Apache on which
that particular level of IBM HTTP Server was based.
