    @Antoine, My issue was resolved by increasing values of "postSizeLimit" and "postParametersLimit" in ColdFusion9\lib\neo-runtime.xml. @Ben - for some reason the solution by PradeepVizz to enable Keep alive setting did not work for me. Nicky!!... read more »

    Hi Ben, Nope. Nothing so far. It definitely looks like a bug or lack of some settings somewhere on our servers. We have escalated the issue to adobe and waiting for their response. Anything at your end please? Happy 2010!!! :)... read more »

    Hey Ben, Sorry for replying so late. Got tied up with other things at work. I was able to convince at work that this is not my bad programming. It's their bad request ;). In fact, I should be considered as an expert because being a newbie, I was able to find a bug in Coldfusion. haha! I tried what... read more »

    That is correct. It's not showing my graceful "pretty" page. It's showing the ugly 500 message if on IE6 or other messages if on different browsers as said above in my first message. Although, on the address bar of the browser it does show upload.cfm. I put <cfdump var="#form#"> on the very ... read more »

    Hi Ben!! Finally you're here. Good to hear from you. That's exactly the problem is. My bad, I was unable to explain properly. As we all know, we cannot check the file size without uploading. I already have a page in place which has graceful message on it. I set this page on IIS for 500 and sub co... read more »

    Jody, Thanks for the link. I'm doing pretty much the same to what is explained on the blog you mentioned above. Ben is doing a little different way. BUT, today I checked it on IE6 just to see if it works on any other browser. To my surprise it throws a 500 error on IE6 which explains a bit more th... read more »

    Brendon & Lonnie, Thanks for your comments which are pretty close and logical to my problem. Unfortunately, none of these helped me so far. This doesn't seem to be the problems that I'm facing or getting. It's just weird. The process is logically simple. All I want is: I don't want anyone to uplo... read more »

    Why do I have to change the server settings? I know that 100 MB is max. And that's why I have a check on the top i.e.: <cfset maxfilesize = 102400000> <cfif val(cgi.content_length) gt maxfilesize> <cfthrow detail="File size too large."> This should trap the file size and throw ... read more »

    It's nothing to do with the hosting. Yes the limitation of 100 MB is there because we do not want anyone to upload anything above 100MB through the http which I am using. Anything above 100MB, we give them a temporary FTP username and password. BUT, what I want is, it shouldn't disconnect from the w... read more »

    Thanks for reply James. No, I am not uploading using FTP. Just by usual form post. On form page following is the code: ---------------------------------------------- <form action="upload.cfm" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data"> <input type="file" name="myFile" accept="application... read more »

    Ben, I am a newbie to coldfusion. I am using <input type="file"> on the page and submitting it to a page where it uploads using cffile. I used "post" method. Using Coldfusion 8 on IIS and Windows 2003. On coldfusion server the maximum file size is set to 100MB. If I try to upload a file lar... read more »
