Plesk: Allow large file uploads

Plesk: Allow large file uploads

To allow large file uploads with Plesk some changes are necessary. If you use Cloudflare there is also an upload restriction directly from Cloudflare. In this case you would have to bypass Cloudflare for your own IP.

We need to adjust the Apache and nginx configuration. In the example below, we assume that the file “/usr/local/psa/admin/conf/panel.ini” does not exist yet, so we copy the template first.

echo 'client_max_body_size 2048m;' > /etc/nginx/conf.d/aa_client_max_body.conf
cp /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/panel.ini.sample /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/panel.ini
chmod 644 /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/panel.ini
echo -e "[webserver]n nginxClientMaxBodySize =2048mn" >> /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/panel.ini
plesk sbin httpdmng --reconfigure-all
service nginx restart
echo 'LimitRequestBody 2147483647' > /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
service apache2 restart

In Plesk we still have to adjust the “Apache & nginx settings” under the corresponding domains, as additional Apache settings (http and https) we enter:

<IfModule mod_fcgid.c>
	FcgidMaxRequestLen 2147483647
	FcgidMaxRequestsPerProcess 100
	FcgidProcessLifeTime 7200
	FcgidIOTimeout 7200
	FcgidMaxRequestInMem 2147483647
LimitRequestBody 2147483647

As additional nginx settings we enter:

client_body_timeout 3600;
