What controls the maximum size file that can be uploaded?

I have not been able to upload documents (pdf, in this case) larger than about 13.5 MB, either with the drag & drop Firefox plugin, or by using the content upload mechanism when creating a new document via the web interface. In each case, it quietly fails after a long wait. It seems as if it must be a time-out setting somewhere, but I don't know where. I haven't been able to pinpoint the critical point in the server logs. What controls the maximum file size? I need to be able to upload pdf files in the 30 MB range. By the way, I'm running version 5.4.2.

Are there any edge devices (e.g., firewalls) between your browser and Nuxeo that may have file size limits?

Not that I know of. I'm running Linux Mint 12 "out of the box" and have not knowingly installed any firewalls or other interference. I have no trouble uploading very large files via ftp to other servers.

np - i switched the comment to an answer since that turned out to be the issue!

and I switched the confirmation comment as a comment to your comment switched as an answer… ;)

Check to see if there is a database timeout.

[anything in your server log? is it possible that it's a database timeout?]

Yes, it was a database transaction timeout. Thank you.


Did you look at one of the following previous answers?

=> How to change size limit for uploaded files

Yes, we followed those directions and it made no difference that I can tell. The upload of my 27 MB pdf dies quietly after a long wait.
