Plesk is running on Windows 2008. When attempt to upload a file with a large size, Plesk shows following error:

HTTP Error 404.13 - Not Found
The request filtering module is configured to deny a request that exceeds the request content length.


The request contains a Content-Length header that is larger than the value specified for this header in maxAllowedContentLength property in ApplicationHost.config.

By default, the value of the maxAllowedContentLength property is 30000000.


Modify the maxAllowedContentLength by using the follwoing command:

>%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set config "PleskControlPanel/" -section:requestFiltering -requestLimits.maxAllowedContentLength:104857600

This command sets maxAllowedContentLength to 100MB.

Please note that the maximum file size which can be uploaded anywhere through IIS is 2GB (maxAllowedContentLength = 2147483647). Parameter maxAllowedContentLength is set to 2GB in Plesk 10.4.4 by default.

Please use another way to upload a file to the server if its size is more than 2GB (for example, FTP). If it is a backup file, you can use the following command to upload a local file into the Plesk backup repository with command line:

>"%plesk_bin%\pmm-ras.exe" --import-file-as-dump --dump-file-specification="C:\backup.file"
