(Failure: Quota exceeded) - file size too large

Hello all,

I just started using alfresco, and after trying to upload a file larger than 128Mb I get the error message:

(Failure: Quota exceeded)

I have searched high and low for this exact phrase and google nor duckduckgo were able to find the answer.

Any help would be appreciated. I guess I can use a workaround of using an archive utility to compress and split the files but this is not idel for the long haul.

Any assiatnce woul be appreciated.

I am using Centos 8 stream, 8 core, 32gb, 500gb disk space VMS.

Kind regards,

How are you installing Alfresco?

This limitation can be configured in the Web Proxy (NGINX), in Tomcat or in the app configuration itself.

A similar problem was reported for Alfresco CE 5.2 on CentOS7:
