maximum request length error when deploying model

Please bear with me as I am new to SQL reporting services.
I am testing SQL reporting to see if it meets our neads. I am trying to deploy a model and I receive the error I attached. I have increased the maximum request length in the machine.config file but i still receive the same error. Is that the correct place to change that parameter? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

This problem occurs because the default value for the maxRequestLength
parameter in the <httpRuntimesection of the Machine.config file is 4096 (4
megabytes). As a result, files that are larger than this value are not
uploaded by default.

To resolve this problem, use one of the following methods: • In the
Machine.config file, change the maxRequestLength attribute of the
<httpRuntimeconfiguration section to a larger value. This change affects
the whole computer.
• In the Web.config file, override the value of maxRequestLength for the
application. For example, the following entry in Web.config allows files that
are less than or equal to 8 megabytes (MB) to be uploaded:<httpRuntime
maxRequestLength="8192" />
