I'm using 3.5 on Godaddy, and I need a way for users to upload large files using FileUpload Control, I don't want to use a third party

I've changed the value of maxRequestLength in web.config as follows:
<httpRuntime executionTimeout="1100" maxRequestLength="512000" />

but when uploding a file of about 32 MB, upload process goes well (I can see percentage for the process in the down-left corner of Chrome browser), but after a while, the process restarts !! and after going with upload for a while page crashes without errors (just telling me that page cannot be displayed)

The same happens on IE (but of course without percentage)

Please help me to solve this issue without third party

How did you solve this issue? I'm having the same problem

1 solution

This setting goes in your web.config file. It affects the entire application, though... I don't think you can set it per page.
    <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="xxx" />

"xxx" is in KB, the default is 4096 (= 4 MB).

I tried it for 10240(10 MB) and it works for me.
