File upload size limit
« on: January 11, 2011, 07:44:04 AM »
Just thought I'd share this with the community in case it benefits anyone else. Our college recently deployed MediaServer for digital signage around our facilities. After some initial configuration and helpful guidance, we have the server up and running. However, one of our content creators ran into an issue with file uploads. He would select the file, import it into the Studio software and hit File save (upload). The progress bars would get to 100% and then either disappear with no file uploaded or error out. The solution that worked for us was to raise the file upload limit in the ASP.NET configuration for the Business web site.

On the computer running MediaServer:
1. Navigate to C:\WebServers\Business\HomeDirectory
2. Open Web.config in a text editor like Notepad.
3. Add the following lines right above the final </configuration> directive (Customize the 524288000 number to suit your needs. This is in bytes):

<system.webServer>
  <security>
    <requestFiltering>
      <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="524288000"/>
    </requestFiltering>
  </security>
</system.webServer>

4. Save the file as Web.config to the desktop and exit Notepad.
5. Now copy the new Web.config file on the desktop to C:\WebServers\Business\HomeDirectory (replacing the old file) You may have to confirm a security prompt.
6. Open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
7. In the left-hand pane, drill down to the 'Business' item under 'Sites' and select it.
8. In the right-hand pane under 'Manage Web Site', click Restart.

This solution has worked for us so far, but follow these instrutions at your own risk. Perhaps someone from MediaSignage could comment and tell us if this is acceptable or if there is a better way to raise the upload limit.

Good to hear! Is this going to be a configurable setting within the Studio software?

No, it will just be set to a max value on server side..
