Not able upload file in Sharepoint site , even after maximum upload limit is changed

SharePoint Asked by Satish Marni on December 8, 2021

In our sharepoint 2013 environment , we have set the maximum upload limit for a file is 50MB and its working fine. 3 days before we changed that maximum upload limit to 100MB from 50MB. However we are not able to upload file beyond 50 MB. When we try to upload 90MB file from server internally it works but it was failing through internet !!

Error Msg:

Sorry, for some reason this document couldn’t upload. Try again later
or contact your administrator.

You have to make a couple of modifications to increase the file size, which are:

First step:

  • Change the maximum upload size on the web application level

In order to do this, you have to go to:

  1. Central Administration
  2. Application Management
  3. Manage Web Applications
  4. Select Web Application you want to modify
  5. General Settings
  6. Input the new file size limit you want and save.

Second step:

  • Modify the corresponding web.config

This file is located at C:inetpubwwwrootwssVirtualDirectoriesYourWebApp

Find this line: <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="51200" requestValidationMode="2.0" />

And replace it with: <httpRuntime executionTimeout="999999" maxRequestLength="102400" requestValidationMode="2.0" />

Then restart IIS with command iisreset

There could be a timeout that affects the upload when you are doing from the internet. Can you increase the timeout in the web.config and try again? The default executionTimeout value is 360 seconds or six minutes.
