I have this issue and I know I need to increase the:

   FcgidMaxRequestLen 15728640

I have tried to do this on the htaccess page, but when uploading, the whole site gives me the 500 Internal error.

The error is:

  [Thu Mar 07 06:16:05 2013] [warn] [client ???????] mod_fcgid: HTTP request length 16783183 (so far) exceeds MaxRequestLen (16777216), referer:

I then have tried adding:

 <IfModule mod_fcgid.c>
 FcgidMaxRequestLen 15728640

This still causes my server to display a 500 error.

What am I doing wrong? I am using a MT DV4 server, I have ssh into it, and the field is saying:

  FcgidIdleTimeout 40
  FcgidMaxRequestLen 1073741824
  FcgidProcessLifeTime 30
  FcgidMaxProcesses 20
  FcgidMaxProcessesPerClass 8
  FcgidMinProcessesPerClass 0
  FcgidConnectTimeout 30
  FcgidIOTimeout 45
  FcgidInitialEnv RAILS_ENV production
  FcgidIdleScanInterval 10

So for some reason its set to a 1gb and I think shoud be ok?

Let’s reconfigure your domain with Plesk....

  /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/httpdmng  --reconfigure-domain


 % service apache2 restart
