Problem when uploading large files in

Dear Folks,

This is an important trick for all web developers and experts as well,one of my dear firends asked me for a problem he faced when uploading files in web application,after justify the problem and make sure that the problem not from any other thing,the problem was he was getting [Request Time Out] when he's trying to upload large file size........the solution for this problem is :

.Net Framework by default deny upload any file which exceed than 4mb for a security reason to prohibit denial of service attack.

simply put this attribute on oyur web.config :

maxRequestLenght change the max. size from 4mb to 8mb

you can change it to whatever you want to limit the max file size.

read more on below kb article :

Enjoy .Netting :)
