I exceeded the maximum size for upload in SharePoint


I get a size limit error when I try to upload a document to SharePoint.


By default the maximum size is set to 50 MB. We simply need to increase the acceptable file size.


  1. In Central Administration, in Application Management, click Manage web applications.
  2. Select the application (for example, SharePoint - 80).
  3. On the Web Applications ribbon, click the down arrow on the General Settings button.
  4. Click General Settings.
  5. Scroll to Maximum Upload Size.
  6. Set the property to the same number as the Maximum Workbook Size in Excel Services.
  7. Click OK.
