In IIS 7 on Windows 2008 Hosting, the web application will reject any file that is larger than 30 MB. You can increase the maximum file size by adding the following code to in the web.config file of your website:

<security>
<requestFiltering>
<requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength=”1000000″ />
</requestFiltering>
</security&gt

You could also execute the following command in CMD:

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set config -section:requestFiltering -requestLim
its.maxAllowedContentLength:1000000

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set config “Web Site/” -section:requestFiltering -requestLimits.maxAllowedContentLength:1000000
