The maximum file size is not allowed and admin needs to make changes on the configuration.


There are two locations to set the maximum upload file size:

  1. For the content file size the property lies in System Administration > Configuration > System Configuration > CONTENT IMPORT

    Please check for the property maximumFileSize.
  2. There is a property which takes case of the maximum upload file size anywhere in the LMS, that property also needs to be changed. There is a 16 character limit to this setting. The property lies in System Administration > Configuration > System Configuration > LMS_ADMIN

    Please check for the property fileUploadMaxSize
