While publishing the pages in Tridion 2013 publishing fails

Error details : The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters


Is there any way we can increase the character limits??

  • I am facing the same error in a Tridion 2011 environment. I have read the post mentioned, but am still struggling to understand what to update to overcome this error. Any suggestions? Commented Apr 5, 2016 at 14:28
  • Judging by the previous answer... It looks like you need to make sure the path you're deploying to is within the windows limit
