Request Entity Too Large


New Member
Does anyone know how to fix this error which shows each time I upload a file to a PHPBB forum?

Request Entity Too Large

The requested resource
does not allow request data with GET requests, or the amount of data provided in the request exceeds the capacity limit.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Yes I already opened a ticket a week or so ago but that is not getting me anywhere. The error pops up after 30 seconds of the upload. I have already changed the execution time from 30s to 300s in the php.ini file and restarted Apache to no avail. I read on the internet that in Apache there is a setting called "LimitRequestBody" but I don't find that setting in my httpd.conf file.

Does anyone have fresh ideas?
This doesn't sound like a server related problem but rather a possible issue with PHPBB or its configuration - it should should be using POST instead of GET for file uploads. You might want to check with PHPBB developers/community to find out why this happens and what needs to be done to resolve this
