Maximum request length exceeded

This error is thrown while attempting to upload a file through the admin site.

The file size exceeds the ASP.NET maximum request length restriction.  By default this value is 4 megabytes.

If you need to upload files larger than 4 MB, you can modify the web.config file manually to change the maximum request length.  Inside the system.web section (such as immediately before the last closing tag </system.web> ), add the following element (where 16384 is the maximum request length in kilobytes):

     <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="16384" />
