Many thanks, Kevin FWIW, I prefer to control this globally using Apache's LimitRequestBody directive in http.conf: # limit size of uploads # ~3MB LimitRequestBody 3072000 # ~72K (for testing) # LimitRequestBody 72000 This will apply to all uploads to the server, and can be used in more narrow contexts, if desired (virtual host, directory, .htaccess). As with the other method, it doesn't prevent the *browser* from uploading files of arbitrary size. No additional headers are added to announce this restriction in size (it would be too late, anyway, since the request has already been sent).
