The specified file is larger than the maximum supported file size-SharePoint 2010
Here we go with one more error message along with step-by-step resolution for the whole SharePoint community.
One of my departmental colleague is trying to upload a file in SharePoint site and getting the following error message:
Server Error in ‘/’ Application
The specified file is larger than the maximum supported file size.
The error message is self explanatory for those who are well versed with the SharePoint functionality, but it is quite understandable to get the confusion for those who have recently migrated to this new SharePoint version, started learning SharePoint recently and so many reason.
But nothing to worry, that’s why I am here to provide the detail instructions as how we can resolve this issue completely.
Little background on this:-
If you are facing this error message then let me clear that this limit is already defined somewhere and that’s why you are getting this exception.
In SharePoint 2010, we have a central console from where we can control all the things which is termed as ‘Central Administration’
So let’s explore this central administration to find out this defined limit.
-Open the SharePoint 2010 Central Administration
-manage web applications
-select the correct web application
-Top side- On the web application Ribbon
-click the down arrow and select General settings button
-Go to ‘maximum upload size’ section
By default its 50MB
-Enter the appropriate value as per your requirements and select OK
Note: This setting will be applicable for the complete web application i.e. applicable for all the site collections which are a part of that web application.
If you have any queries/questions regarding the above mentioned information then please let me know, I would be more than happy to help you as well as resolves your issues, Thank you…
