Error: request entity too large

The “request entity too large” error is typically encountered when a client (such as a web browser) sends a request to a server that is larger than the server is configured to handle. This can occur when a client is uploading a large file or sending a large amount of data in the request body.

This error can be caused by different reasons, but some of the common ones are:

  • The server’s maximum allowed request size is set too low.
  • The client is sending a file that is larger than the maximum allowed size.
  • The server-side code does not correctly handle large requests.

There are different ways to fix this problem, depending on the specific cause:

  • Increase the maximum allowed request size on the server.
  • Reduce the size of the file being uploaded by the client.
  • Handle large requests correctly in the server-side code.
  • In some cases, you may need to split the large files into smaller chunks and send them separately.

It’s also good to check the error logs of the server to get more information about the cause of the error.
