ERROR Request entity too large Request exceeds the capacity limit

0 votes

Hi Guys,

I am trying to download one file using Apache server, but it shows me the below error.

ERROR: Request entity too large. Request exceeds the capacity limit

And Apache error_log has the following error.

Request content-length of 294135 is larger than the configured limit of 262144

How can I solve this error?

The file download size limit is controlled by the Apache directive “LimitRequestBody“. By default, it is not set, which means unlimited or virtually no limit in the POST requests. If the directive is set to a specific size, then exceeding that size will produce an error. So to avoid this error edit the httpd.conf file and remove or comment out the directive.

#LimitRequestBody 262144

Hope this will help.
