SharePoint Error: Length allowed by the Web administrator.

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Where is the web.config file located to change the size of the files uploaed? I have a SharePoint site and tried to upload a large file. I received this error:

The form submission cannot be processed because it exceeded the maximum length allowed by the Web administrator. Please resubmit the form with less data.

I see this article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822059 and it says to look in the web.config file to change the setting. Where is the file located on the server?

Thank you.
