How to fix problems uploading images in mvc 3/razor

The Problem: You are attempting to create create an mvc 3 page with razor that uses an upload control.  You try to upload an image and all you get is a “server not available” error.  Not very descriptive it it?

The Cause: sets the default upload limit very low.

The Solution: Raise the limit, just add this to the web.config file ,

<httpRuntime maxRequestLength=”9097151″ executionTimeout=”3600″/>

That’s it!

  1. I do not like it. I want to see a Timeout and change things for it (optimize queries, for example).

    In my projects (WebForms), I placed all upload handler in directory with this code. Only upload and similar handlers.
