Question

Spaces PHP SDK (413 Request Entity Too Large)

Hello,

I’m not sure if this has been posted yet?

But whenever I try uploading a file over I would say 500MB from my website using the AWS PHP SDK kit for DigitalOcean Spaces; I ultimately get the error:

413 Request Entity Too Large
--------
nginx

The website is using a custom made PHP script in which I have coded.

I’ve checked my php.ini file and my settings are set too:

file_uploads = On
max_execution_time = 300
max_file_uploads = 2000
max_input_time = 6000
memory_limit = 12000008M
post_max_size = 1000000M
upload_max_filesize = 1000000M

Am I missing something? Or does anyone have an idea why I can’t upload large items?

I’ve finally figured it out :)

After some further googling I came across this article from Plesk and tried the recommended method and it works!

I also found out that there’s also a direct extension that could be used on Plesk > “Panel.ini Editor” and then just search for “[webserver] nginxClientMaxBodySize” enter your value that you want; and you’re good!

Hi there @DevLexicon,

You would need to update your Nginx configuration and increase the client_max_body_size.

To do that open the /etc/nginx/nginx.conf file:

  1. sudo nano /etc/nginx/nginx.conf

And inside the http { block add the following line:

client_max_body_size 500M;

After that run an Nginx config test:

  1. sudo nginx -t

And if you get Syntax OK restart Nginx:

  1. systemctl restart nginx

Let me know how it goes! Regards, Bobby
