Windows 2003 upload size limit – error 800a0001
Windows 2003 by default limits upload sizes to 200 KB for ASP pages. With AspUpload, this usually manifests as an error such as these:
Persits.Upload.1 error ‘ 800a0001 ‘
Persits.Upload.1 error ( 0x800a0001 )
IIS 6.0 on Windows 2003 has a file named metabase.xml which resides in the folder C:Windowssystem32inetsrv . By default, this file has this entry:
AspMaxRequestEntityAllowed = “204800”
This limits upload size to 204,800 bytes. You can change that to a large value (such as 2000000000for 2 gigabytes) to allow your Windows 2003 server to accept large uploads.
If your server does not allow the Metabase Edit-While-Running feature, you will need to stop the IIS service before you can save the metabase.xml file.
