Increase size limitation for saving site as template

Hi All,

One more thing in this.

The hard limit for site template is 524288000 Bytes. that is 500 Mb. you cannot have more than that.

This limitation applies both for site template and list template both.

Above is Updated Content on 26-Jun-08.

Hi All,

sometimes you may find that you are not able to save your site as a template because of size limitation.

Here is a way from which you can increase the size of template to save.

stsadm -o setproperty -pn max-template-document-size -pv 40000000

numbers should be given in Bytes

That's it. there you go. Now go and save your site!!!!
