Description of my issue

Hello

If I try to upload a file larger than 1meg into Standard Notes I get an error on all platforms of the Standard Notes apps.

So it’s a server config issue. Can anyone help me please to fix this? I’m by no means an expert, I can use ssh and nano so I’m not too frightened, but the instructions need to be as clear as possible for I am a bit of a thicky!!!

I have seen this somewhere else but for the life of me I cant remember where.

in Standard Notes NGINX config (/etc/nginx/config.d/standard_notes_domain.tld.d/snweb.conf), you can add (for 50M)

client_max_body_size 50M;

hello @ericg thanks very much for your reply, I do appreciate it. Today I had a look at this file and did the following changes:

sub_path_only rewrite ^/$ / permanent;
location / {
  proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:3002/;
  proxy_http_version 1.1;
  proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
  proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
  proxy_set_header Connection $connection_upgrade;
  proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
  proxy_buffering off;
}

location = / {
  default_type text/plain;
  return 200 "This is where Standard Notes - Syncing Server is installed.";
}

location /files/ {
  proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:3005/;
  proxy_http_version 1.1;
  proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
  proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
  proxy_set_header Connection $connection_upgrade;
  proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
  proxy_buffering off;
  client_max_body_size 100M;
}

Have I put the

client_max_body_size 100M;

in the right place?

Many thanks

@ericg Just asking. Would you know why the Listed connection wont work. If I click “Create New Author” nothing happens. The button greys out, says its trying to Create the account but then just times out?

Thank you
