Upgrade 2399 > 2400 - web.config <security> ?

In my "old" 2399 web.config I have commented out the following code (between lines 1087 and 1093):
  <!--
    <security>
      <requestFiltering>
        <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="31457280"/>
      </requestFiltering>
    </security>
    -->

However, in the new 2400 web.config, this code (between lines 1097 and 1101) is not commented out.

I don't know why the 2399 web.config has these lines commented out.

Please will someone explain:
1) The purpose of this code?

2) Whether it should be commented out or not in the 2400 version?
 

 Thanks

Re: Upgrade 2399 > 2400 - web.config ?

It was uncommented in the new one by accident. The main reason it is intended to be commented out by default is because in some environments it would cause an error if those settings are locked down at a higher level so we were just trying to avoid an error that could crash the site in some environments.

It is a very useful setting to uncomment because it affects how large of files can be uploaded, this settings is discussed in the article Supporting Large File Uploads.

So if it causes you no errors (and it should cause none in most environments) then that is good.

Best,

Joe

I have not yet tested the new web.config so I don't yet know whether it will cause any errors.
However, I have commented out the code in the 2.4.0.0 web.config.

Thanks
