Problem with CGI upload on Windows Server 2003by pernod (Chaplain)
|on Feb 25, 2005 at 03:57 UTC||Need Help??|
pernod has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've been struggling with this file-upload thing on a Windows 2003 server for some time now, and was wondering if anyone has solved this problem before. IIS 6 on 2003 server is locked down quite well, so all services are off per default. A good thing, but ...
I have a rather standard Perl CGI form that uploads files to a directory on the server, and this works fine on other Windowses. Problem is that some setting blocks uploading on this server, and I have to use this box.
I tried updating the AspMaxRequestEntityAllowed variable in c:\windows\system32\MetaBase.xml, and restarting the webserver, to no avail. File uploads for .asp-scripts on this server is per default capped to 200KB on IIS 6 on Windows 2003, and I thought changing this would also apply to Perl.
I'll keep digging into this, but any insights would be greatly appreciated.
