There was an error contacting...

Hi guys,

I can't seem to get published one of my eSpaces (the rest of them are fine), it is always showing up an error "There was an error contacting [NameOfServer]", ir shows after stage 2 (Uploading) in the process of one-click-publish.
When rollover the error it shows an aditional description "There was an error the extensions specified in the config file. ---> Maximum request length exceeded."

Any ideas?
Hello Hugo,

Do you change the MaxRequestLength on the machine config when you installed the server?
Check this post for better explanation:

I hope that helps

Hi Hugo,

It would seem that the current server configuration doesn't allow for such a large file upload. For you to fix that, you have to manually change a setting in the machine.config file, for ASP.Net.

I suggest you look into this post to learn more about how to do it.

Na, was't that, i didn't even have a maxRequestLength on Machine.config, I configured it on the application level because of this error but it didn't resolve it.
Sorry for the last hasty post.

Afterall the solution of the other page really helped:
<httpRuntime executionTimeout="1200" maxRequestLength="20480" /> 

it's a rap!

Thanks a lot.
Hi Hugo,

Glad to hear you have it covered.

Regards, and keep up the great work.
