"Apache Commons Fileupload" is an add-on java library for Apache Tomcat (or other java 
servlet engines), and has nothing to do with Apache httpd.
It may be used by openCMS to realise their file upload functionality.

That is why Konstantin was mentioning it.  There may be a parameter to set, in order for 
FileUpload to allow more than 2 GB.
