If you need to increase the upload limit with Umbraco, this can easily be done if you have root access to your server.
You may have to contact your hosting provider if this is not the case.
First off, you need to update your Web.Config allow the file size you need...
Carry out a search for:
Then change the value to the file size you require in kb, for example 100MB in kb is 100000
Once you have made this change you need to update IIS to also increase the limit, there are 2 ways to do this...
and run this code:
appcmd.exe set config "sitename" -section:requestFiltering -requestLimits.maxAllowedContentLength:size in bytes -commitpath:apphost
Open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager find your website under Sites and click on its name.
Then under IIS click on Request Filtering in this section on the right click on Edit Feature Settings
Then change the Maximum allowed content length (Bytes) in my case again 100MB is 104857600Bytes.
Click Ok and then restart your sites Application Pool
I came across an issue after updating my Visual Studio version to 15.5.3 which would cause my solution to throw an exception whenever it tried to access the database.
System.IO.FileLoadException: 'Could not load file or assembly 'System.Data.SqlClient, Version=188.8.131.52, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)'
The fix for this is nice and easy, you just need to install the NuGet (V4.4.2) package System.Data.SqlClient.
