How to get around form post limit
Posted on 2009-07-10
I'm developing an app that needs to save a large chunk of text data to a database. I've noticed if I exceed 64,000 characters (64k) when I submit my form it will truncate to 64k. I'm using the POST method of the form.
Is there a way to circumvent this limitation? The website is being hosted at a third party company so I don't have the option of changing any settings on the server-side, like in IIS.
I noticed Google Docs has a limit of 500k per document, but I bet they host their own web servers as well and can make changes to the POST limit on their servers.
Is there any other way around this? Can I use something other than a form to submit user entered data to the server that would have a higher limit? Or is my only hope changing settings on the actual server? Thanks for your help!
