The IIS MetaBase.xml file entiry "AspMaxRequestEntityAllowed" can make any difference in uploading sharepoint 2007 files?

The AspMaxRequestEntityAllowed (and other ASP-specific settings like AspBufferingLimit) setting is an ASP (classic) limit. It doesn't affect ASP.NET or other web frameworks running on IIS.

Here is a short tutorial describing the steps that are necessary for increasing the upload limits of a Sharepoint 2007 site:

  1. Increase the Web Applications Upload limit.
  2. Increase the HTTP Timeout.
  3. Increase the Execution Timeout and MaxRequestLength in web.config
