Last Modified: 2012-05-10
Am trying to upload a file about 60MB in size to my Windows sharepoint services 3.0 running on Server 2008 with IIS7. I always have "The webpage cannot be displayed HTTP 404 error message. I've increased the upload size on the server to 250MB, followed a couple of helpful links from microsoft support website, reboot my server all to avail. I also have AD running on my server.
Can someone offer some help as to what I can do to resolve this issue? Thanks!

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I was able to increase timeout limit from 120secs to 300secs but that did not resolve the issue. Still had The webpage cannot be found HTTP 404 when I tried to upload a larger file.
