Managing SharePoint File Size Limits

Problem

By default, SharePoint (WSS3 and MOSS 2007) limits file sizes to 50mb. However I would like to change that number. Is there a way to change this configuration?

Solution

Yes. This is configured with the SharePoint Central Administration tool. If you don't know the port number of the Central Administration interface, you can launch it directly on the SharePoint server, from within the Control Panel/Administrative Tools. (Note the port number and you will be able to launch the Central Administration console remotely next time!)

Click on "Application Management"

Select "Web application general settings".

Look for the "Maximum upload size" setting and adjust to your preference.

Click "OK".

When finished, reset the IIS web server.
