Maximum size of attached files?


I did import a document now do i want to attach a few mp4 vid's to it. it's looking like there is a 100MB limit, is this correct? and how can i change this limit?

I'm using Nuxeo 5.5 on Ubuntu 11.10 64bit in virtualbox 3 cores with 6GB ram

Here is my logs.

What did i do?

  1. Login with a user account
  2. go to my “personal workspace”
  3. go to “import a file” and select a file.
  4. when the file is uploaded i go to the “file” tab.
  5. In the FILE-tab i select add.
  6. here i select the mp4 files i need.

this also happens when i use the admin account and in the workspaces from the default domain

the file sizes are from 30 till 80 MB

Hello Bjalon,

I did make a standard installation from nuxeo using the online-guide. what i,m go to do now is install nuxeo on real computer instead in virtualbox just to see if i can replicate the problem.


Can you give us the documentation you followed ?



  1. i did make a clean instal from Ubuntu-server 11.10 64bits
  2. installed sun-java6-jdk (no openjdk, with openjdk the dasboard wil not work)
  3. installing Nuxeo from point"Installing from the APT sources from the terminal"

Just a remark. I just made a test with a VMware Fusion VM and I installed this ubuntu distribution.

I did the documentation you pointed from point "Installing from the APT sources from the terminal"

  • I had an error during the install,

  • I did twice the "sudo apt-get install nuxeo" action (I didn't analyze yet this error, but I will work on it)

  • I choose always the default configuration

  • and finally it works without installing the Sun… euh… Oracle sorry JDK.

    $ java -version java version "1.6.0_23" OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.11pre)…

And I accessed to the application from my host http://vmipaddress:8080/ and the dashboard and all work well. Can you create a jira ticket to explain what was your trouble with openjdk?



i did a install on my laptop also with Sun.. euh.. Oracle. and did get the same problem. I try OpenJDK again if it work for you it should work for me to.

Did you try with a real… Euh modern… Browser? I mean did you use Internet explorer. If this the case I will try with same version to see if I can reproduce your problem.

Yea i did use real (lol) Browsers, I use Opera and firefox.

IE8 = same problem

i can try IE8 (did not think about that) and a Android browser


Ok, I may reproduce your problem. I have in my logs this following message:

2012-01-03 04:15:48,701 ERROR [javax.enterprise.resource.webcontainer.jsf.lifecycle] jsf.lifecycle.phase.exception

Do you have the same ?

You have an answer about how to look into Nuxeo log here.

01/03/2012 this is my log file. at the end i see errors that looks like yours. also i read a out of memory error in the log

Did you already have a PostgreSQL installed on your Ubuntu instance ? This is really strange that you have this following message:

WARN  [org.nuxeo.ecm.platform.relations.jena.JenaGraph] Cannot set databaseTransactionEnabled attribute to false for model default, other models already exist with value true

No i always use a clean install.

Did you have the same trouble when you are using the drag'n drop on chrome for instance?

Can you give me more information about your OS that support your browser?


I did use firefox and opera on opensuse 12.1 also IE8 in windows xp (virtualbox)

did not try chrome (need to install it first)


i do get the same with chrome. with drag'n drop i got no problems it only take's a long time for big file's to proces.

Can we continue the discussion on this ticket, I copied the content of this question into this ticket…

It will be easier to discuss on the ticket as here this Question => Answer


I did a local test on my computer (localhost:8080/nuxeo, Mac OS 10.7, Safari 5.1.2) with a nuxeo-cap-5.5 version (default configuration and without modification) and all works well for a 1Go movie film.

I also did a remote test on a server with a tomcat behind it and it works fine:

Did you put an apache in front of your Nuxeo ?
