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"

1 Central Admin

Select "Web application general settings".

2 Application Management

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

3 Web Application General Settings

Click "OK".

When finished, reset the IIS web server.
