We have hosted our HTTP Upload on a Linux box. While publishing binary having size more then 1.5 MB it throws error.I am suspecting that this is a Size limit issue with Deployer and HTTP upload.

Phase: Deployment Prepare Commit Phase failed. Unable to prepare transaction: tcm:0-21361-66560

I have changed the value in Deployer config from 10000000 to 104857600

HTTPSReceiver MaxSize="104857600" Location="D:\tridion\incoming" InProcessDeploy="true"/>

Where do i need to change this in Linux box?

Same issue has been see in windows at below link.

Tridion 2011 SP1 HTTPS Publishing throwing 'Post size exceeded allowed limits'

Please suggest ?

    This is likely to be an Application Server limitation (like in Windows it's an IIS configuration). It would help if you share which App Server you're using.

It entirely depends which web server you are using. For example: if you are using Tomcat, then you may want to follow the below link:


Here refer the maxPostSize property which you should be considering.

Share the specific Web Server you are using, and the community will be in better shape to help you out :)


WebSphere: you can look at following to increase PostSizeLimit key, if value is less than your required.
