C#, .Net ,Asp.net and my thoughts

how to upload larger files in asp.net 2

by default asp.net application did not upload file more than 4.5 mb or 4 mb. For this purpose You have to add following http runtime tag in web.cofig of web site.

<httpRuntime executionTimeout=90 maxRequestLength=20096useFullyQualifiedRedirectUrl=false minFreeThreads=8 minLocalRequestFreeThreads=4appRequestQueueLimit=10000;/>

you have to change two setting in above code.MaxRequestLength (Here you mention the size limit of file , bydefault it is 4 mb) and appRequestQueueLimit (it is the time when application take time to upload the request.)

    I tried this in my website
    http://www.in-riga.com
    to upload images and even it works, it is so slow that is unpractical.

    Also if you have some other input fields in the page, validations on these fields only happen after the full upload. This makes the page not very user friendly, because you have to wait for several seconds to know you forgot a value in a field.
