Nodejs 413 request entity too large error Nodejs 413 request entity too large error

Published on Jul 31, 2022

There are several ways to resolve this issue. First, you should check with your hosting provider to see what settings they recommend. Second, you can try increasing the memory limit on your web server. Third, you can use a different method to upload the file instead of using FTP (File Transfer Protocol). Finally, you can split up the file into smaller parts and upload them one at a time.

If you're using Expressjs and receive this error, then it's a pretty simple solution to change upload size limit with the following command:


app.use(express.json({limit: '50mb'}));
app.use(bodyParser.json({ limit: "200mb" }));
app.use(bodyParser.urlencoded({ limit: "200mb",  extended: true, parameterLimit: 1000000 }));

You can change the file size limit as required to meet your needs.

If this doesn't solve your problem then it might be an issue with your web server. I've also got answers to help you solve whether you're using NGINX or Apache.

About Jamie Munro

Welcome to my blog. I have been compiling articles since 2009! Below is a list of every post I've ever created. Some of my major focuses have been compiling the best source of jQuery tutorials on the Internet today. A recent focus of mine is now focusing on creating the best SQL Tutorials for Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced Users. This is a compiliation of all my experience about how to do common SQL commands to optimize for performance. As you might see from the links around here, I've also written and published 5 books. My first and last book are focused around ASP.NET MVC and Web API tutorials. The last book has a big focus on integrating Knockout.js as the MVVM for the front-end code. O'Reilly Media was so interested in Knockout.js that they actually commissioned me to write that book first as it is one of the only books dedicated entirely to this MVVM library. So if you're looking for the best Knockout.js tutorials, I've compiled the best list. My first book, even though it was self published, was on the PHP framework: CakePHP. I used this framework for years and many of my first ever exampes were all focused on CakePHP tutorials that provide so many fantastic PHP examples. There are so many Javascript tutorials out there, but I noticed that one of the things I work on most with Javascript is arrays. With this I've worked hard on compiling a big list of really advanced Javascript array examples. These array examples are amazing including how to group by, get distinct array elements and so many more. I've also dabbled a little bit with Node.js and during those experiments I definitely ran into some common errors like Can't set headers after they are sent, Solving No Access-Control-Allow-Origin with Node js and Express, and Uncaught ReferenceError: require is not defined. With these common errors I've compiled a list of Node.js tutorials that help solve these problems, but more importantly getting you started with the basics.
