IIS: Maximum request length exceeded

This usually happens because the you’ve reached a limit on the maximum request length while uploading a file or processing a request.

The default for this setting is around 4mb.

You can edit the web.config with the following lines:

<configuration>
<system.web>
<httpRuntime maxRequestLength=”1048576″ />
</system.web>
</configuration>

This will change the max to around 1 gb.
