Modify the file upload limit

NOTE: We are in the process of modifying the file structure and configuration for many Bitnami stacks. On account of these changes, the file paths stated in this guide may change depending on whether your Bitnami stack uses native Linux system packages (Approach A), or if it is a self-contained installation (Approach B). To identify your Bitnami installation type and what approach to follow, run the command below:

 $ test ! -f "/opt/bitnami/common/bin/openssl" && echo "Approach A: Using system packages." || echo "Approach B: Self-contained installation."

The output of the command indicates which approach (A or B) is used by the installation, and will allow you to identify the paths, configuration and commands to use in this guide. Refer to the FAQ for more information on these changes.

To modify the file upload limit, follow the steps below:

  • Edit the file and set the com.liferay.portal.upload.LiferayFileItem.threshold.size option. For example:

      com.liferay.portal.upload.LiferayFileItem.threshold.size 1048576

NOTE: Depending on your installation type, the file can be found in the following locations:

  • Approach A (Bitnami installations using system packages): /opt/bitnami/tomcat/webapps/liferay/WEB-INF/classes/

  • Approach B (Self-contained Bitnami installations): /opt/bitnami/apache-tomcat/webapps/liferay/WEB-INF/classes/

  • Restart the Tomcat server for the changes to take effect:

      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/ restart tomcat
