good day

When I upload a war file using Tomcat 7 Iget an exception as shown below:

java.lang.IllegalStateException: org.apache.tomcat.util.http.fileupload.FileUploadBase$SizeLimitExceededException: the request was rejected because its size (57688940) exceeds the configured maximum (52428800)

where do i configure tomcat to change this?

Thanks
Sonwabo

a google search for "tomcat file upload size limit" found many references.

Hi

I do not seem to understand the answer I supposedly received from you.

My intent was that you should perform that Google search - thus getting links to multiple discussions of configuration settings including "maxPostSize".

Google searches and Wikipedia articles work surprisingly well at answering many Java questions.
