Override ‘Upload Files to Server Repository’ limit in Windows Machines / Plesk


During the Windows Server migration, you might encounter errors while Uploading backup files to Server Repository.  This is due to a upload limit set by default. No problem, you can simply override this limit.



Windows Server / Plesk control panel access (through rdesktop)

Here we go >>



1) I assume you are logged into the Windows Server which have the backup files to be uploaded.

2) Now You try to upload files larger than 30 MB and got stuck with

‘HTTP Error 404.13 – Not Found

The request filtering module is configured to deny a request that exceeds the request content length.’

3) The Solution is : Go to Start -> Run -> Execute the following command

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set config "PleskControlPanel/"  -section:requestFiltering  -requestLimits.maxAllowedContentLength:104857600

You are Done !

The only thing that needs your attention is that the figure given out at the last section of the command. Here  it is ‘104857600’ which is nothing but the representation of 100 MB in bytes. So change the figure according to your requirement.

For Instance 700 MB is 734003200 bytes.

‘Voila ! Wishing you a Happy and Successful Transfer !
