Nginx Error - 413 Request Entity Too Large

linux, nginx, programming, quickie, web

If you’re getting 413 Request Entity Too Large errors trying to upload with nginx.net/, you need to increase the size limit in nginx.conf . Add ‘client_max_body_size xxM’ inside the server section, where xx is the size (in megabytes) that you want to allow.
