413 - Request Entity Too Large

Post by WookieGTB » Fri Oct 13, 2006 2:02 am

I'm sure this has been covered before but I have not been able to find it. If someone simply links ot an existing thread I'll be very greatful.

Fresh install of Joomla, and I have an issue where when I try to install via a file upload (template, component etc) that the upload fails. It does not even attempt to uplaod the file and dumps me straight to a 413 error

Code: Select all

Request Entity Too Large
The requested resource
does not allow request data with POST requests, or the amount of data provided in the request exceeds the capacity limit. 

Apache/2.0.46 (Red Hat) Server at xxxxxxxxx.com.au Port 80
any ideas?

This is a php setting issue I think.... I can't remember the setting variable, but php allows the liimiting of how much data can be passed between variables by using the POST action. You will ost likely need to contact your server administrator and ask if they can modify it for you.

If you build a file, name if what ever you like  .php

Place the following in to the file and upload it to your server.

Open a browser and run the file, it will give you all your PHP settings (remember to delete the file after you have found out your settings, not a good thing to leave on a server)

Alternatively, you may have one or more corrupt files, uploaded through FTP, especially if this is a new installation this is possible.

Hi there I'm having the same problem that you had a few months ago, did you every find out how to fix it?

I've checked my
upload_max_filesize 2M
post_max_size 8M

and they seem fine, is there something else I should change???

Any advice would be much appreciated.

I've solved this issue by following method:

My joomla portal runs on nginx server, so I've add following line in nginx.conf file

client_max_body_size 100M;

Restart nginx server and now able to upload plugin easily in joomla manage section.

Bonjour à tous,

Je débute dans la création de mon site. Lorsque je souhaite télécharger un nouveau Template, une erreur 413 apparaît. D'où peut venir cette erreur et comment la résolver.
