Hello Experts,

Ok, so I've been having issues uploading large files (1GIG +) using Coldfusion 8.  So after several google searches and experimenting with the Memory Setting in the "Settings" page, I ran into an issue.

Basically, I set the three memory settings in the coldfusion admin settings page to: 4096MB.  (my server has a total memory of 4Gig)

Because of this change, I am now getting the following error on the Coldfusion Admin page, everytime I launch it to revert the change.

coldfusion.util.MemorySemaphore$MemoryUnavailableException: Memory required (141 bytes) exceeds the maximum allowed memory.

Is there a config file I can modify to revert the setting back to their default values?
