    To start off, I'm coming from an Apache/MySQL/PHP background, and I'm just learning IIS/ASP/SQL so some things are new to me.

    So I'm working on a site, and the client wants to be able to manage their Documents/PDFs. Everything works, but when they upload a file, if the file size is > 200kbs, then IIS doesn't allow the file to be uploaded. Since I'm new to this, I've been working on this for a few days now and I've come so far. My boss does not want me to stop IIS and change the configuration to have a larger Max File Size.

    Any suggestions?

    Why doesn't he want to edit the file? It it pretty simple and should take less than 30 seconds.

    I don't think there is another work around. The browser is sending the content-length and IIS is rejecting it because it is too large.

    He said that it can be done using flash, however I talked him into just changing it in IIS. Thanks though
