Modify the Apache Tomcat file upload limit

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

Modify the max-file-size and max-request-size values in the application’s web.xml configuration file (for example, in the installdir/apache-tomcat/webapps/manager/WEB-INF/web.xml file).


Remember to restart your Tomcat server for the changes to take effect.
