Maximum request length exceeded exception

I just completed a project at work where I wrote an ASP.NET portal where file upload/download was part of the delivered functionality. During testing we discovered an issue where large files were uploaded to the solution and e got the exception “Maximum request length exceeded”. After some googling, I found Hosam Kamel’s Blog that had a shot and consis explaination on the issue.

The main solution is to set the maxRequestLength  element in httpRuntime (System.Web) in either machine.config or web.config.

maxRequestLength=”51200″
