That's really useful, thanks. A quick google for 'nginx post length limit' brings up this link: which suggests changing client_max_body_size. Does that help?

Thanks for the link.

I tried setting the following in /etc/nginx/sites-available/

  server {
  # ... various vars as in plus the following:
  client_max_body_size 10m;
I also tried with client_max_body_size 10000000;

In both cases uploading the bzip2 file hangs.

I also tried setting client_max_body_size in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf but there get a different error:

  Restarting nginx: [emerg]: unknown directive "client_max_body_size" in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf:31
So it doesn't work for me. The documentation at suggests that the default value is 1m. This means that bzip2, which is under 1m, should be uploaded without a problem.

Update: Tried setting "client_max_body_size 32m;" under the "http" section in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf but posting still hangs.

Ok I finally got around to trying to replicate this, and you're right, that setting doesn't seem to make a difference.

Sorry this took so long.

I assume you restarted the nginx service?

Yes. Does upload in Anarki behind nginx work for you?
