Default iis 5

Hello all. Need your help. We are running an iis server version 5 (I know). I get an error in my ASP file upload page due to files to large. Only over 150kb! I am trying to see where I can change the ASPMAXENTITYALLLOWED property. I downloaded metaedit which allowed me to open the metabase.bin file. I found this property, but it is already at the max setting. Any other ideas?? I am trying to avoind going to iis6 which has metabase.xml, a much easier way to change the variables.

Very strange!! This ASPMAXENTITYALLLOWED property you talk about, IME this does not control allowed file sizs with IIS versions before 6.0 - Out of interest where are you viewing this?

You say over 150kb, I dont think so. There must be some mistake? The default script time out (90 seconds I beleive) IIS allows you to control is the only problem I have ever come accross using v 5.0 + but less than 6.0

I can upload up to 10MB files using a pure ASP upload. How are you uploading files? I assume with some component, you should find a component specific setting to eliminate your issue. You say:

;;;I get an error in my ASP file upload page due to files to large

Help others help you - Post the error and explain what you are using to perform the upload

Hi Matt.
if you would be so kind to visit "http://www.freeaspupload.net". Its a great code when it works! Source code is there. Its just to asp pages. Maybe you can see something within the code that i dont see....

Page returns this error:

System reported this error:
response.write "The most likely cause for this error is the incorrect setup of AspMaxRequestEntityAllowed in IIS MetaBase.
Please see instructions in the requirements page of freeaspupload.net

By the way Matt, I downloaded "metaEdit 2.2. This allowed me to view to metabase.bin file which appraently holds the variables that ii6 uses in the now available "metabase.xml" file.

I tried endlessly to upload again files. any file under 150 kb went through. as soon as its above that, it says the server is busy, or reset or can not dispaly the page. Any ideas?

I even went ahead and used a diffeent code "pureupload" that everyone uses, and I get the exact same errors, so it MUST be from the server.

As it says:

;;;Please see instructions in the requirements page of freeaspupload.net

Did you look at these instructions? I am suprised nobody else has gven tier opinion here. I am very sure IIS version previous to 6.0 do not have a default max file upload set. I upload files all the time using a pure ASP upload and locally run XP pro using IIS 5.1 - myself nor any developers in my office have ever run into this issue. When we roll out on IIS 6.0 we alter the metabase.xml file and have no problem.

;;;I even went ahead and used a diffeent code "pureupload" that everyone uses, and I get the exact same errors, so it MUST be from the server.

How can a different script give you the exact error? The error above is a freeaspupload.net error isnt it? have you checked you script time out setting? How long is your script running when it fails?

HI Mat. Thanks for all your time and input. We have did the most technical change to fix and cure this problem.... WE RESTARTED THE SERVER!!!. LOL. Apparently the server was just hanging up somewhere. Sometimes it would wrk, sometimes not, so when my HUGE file DID in fact make it across, I then realized its the serve and not the code. We re-booted the server and now works like a charm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a learnign lesson THAT was.

No worries....The old re-boot, always worth a try, glad your issue is resolved.

FYI remember - There is no max file size set is IIS version previous to 6.0 - Providing your code is trouble free, the default script time out (90 seconds I think) is the only issue I have ever come accross uploading large files.

IMO - if you need to get large files think is uploading over HTTP the option. FTP is there fora reason.

Mat, I need to pick your brain now.... I am creating folders on the server using file system objects... I get a "write to file failed error". Where do I change permissions so my dynamically created folders will have permissions to write to it?? These folders get created inside a main folder called "damaged_photos".

Thanks for your wisdom. I am on iis5
