What is the max. upload size and if there is it possible to change it.

I want it use it for a internal down and upload page.

If i try to upload a file of 20 Mb i get this error.

A critical error has occurred.
Maximum request length exceeded.

That's a web.config setting and has nothing to do with the repository. Open up your web.config and look for

<!-- allow large file uploads -->

<httpRuntime executionTimeout="300" useFullyQualifiedRedirectUrl="true" maxRequestLength="10000" />

Your's will look slightly different that that one but that's the line you need to edit. maxRequestLength is where you set the file sixe (default is 8192 or about 8MB). You can change it to whaterver you want but there is a price to pay. Do a search at on maxRequestLength for more info.

Also, chances are you'll have to add the executionTimeout setting as well. By default I think .NET limits it to one minute.

max upload size is in your web.config in the application root (\inetpub\wwwroot\dotnetnuke) - make a backup, then find this line

<add key="upload.maxsize" value="10MB" />

The format of this option is <number>MB (or KB or b, so you may write 100Kb or 20MB or 150b).

so there's no way to configure the upload-size for the module only. Is there any other way to do this ? For example, I would like my repository module with template AAA ( or skin AAA ) can upload file with size limit to N1  bytes, and template BBB can upload file with size limit to N2 bytes. Beside that, can I change the file extension filter for files to upload ? The default is (All Files *.*) (Pictures *.jpg, *.gif) (Html *.html, *.htm).

Out of topic question: in module setting, I allow registered users to view module only, and they can not edit the module. If I log in as a registered user, a edit mark appears next to the item which I am the author. If I click on the edit mark, Repository shows: "you don't have permission to ... " I think it's fine. So I allow registered users to edit module. This time,  all items have edit mark on them, and I can freely make changes even I'm not the author of items. And all changes I made are apply right away in Repository, don't need any Approve from the Moderator. Is it followed design or did I miss anything ?
