I have set up a Droplet[OS: linux, Ubuntu] & configured Tomcat manager on it.
Now when i try to upload new war file for a new project, i get this error :
Deploy Upload Failed, Exception: org.apache.tomcat.util.http.fileupload.FileUploadBase$IOFileUploadException: Processing of multipart/form-data request failed. null**

I tried all solutions with no luck.

Any help?

By default Tomcat has a max upload size of 50MB. (I.e max size of WAR file)

If you require larger file, try increasing max-file-size and max-request-size within the tomcat web.xml. Note: those values are both stored in bytes.

Edit …/webapps/manager/WEB-INF/web.xml. (Ensure the file sizes are larger than the war file your trying to upload). I.e if you require 80MB WAR,

Then restart apache tomcat.
