SOLVED Large JSON file upload getting nginx 413 error
@nebulon Sure, it's non public so I will email to support address now thanks.
Ok, thanks that helped. There are two memory related issues I can reproduce.
- Memory limit from Cloudron side: With that json import I had to at least bump up the memory limit for that app instance via the Cloudron dashboard to 1Gb temporarily
- It will still fail due to
Both issues will result in status code 413, which results in Ghost showing the error message
Request is larger than the maximum file size the server allowswhich is not related to the actual upload size or so, but actually a processing memory requirement issue.
I don't yet have a solution but just wanted to give an update here.
Thanks. This is quite important to us to get this loaded into a Ghost instance. If anyone has any ideas or a temporary work around I'd be happy to know - or if Ghost has another method of importing content that would work with the Cloudron package.
node --max-old-space-size=4096 current/index.js
In this case allowing up to 4Gb. The issue is, I am not sure how to put this properly in the package, as this heavily depends on the set memory limit of the whole app instance.
Hopefully we can come up with a good solution later today.
@nebulon Appreciated. If there is any temporary command I can execute in the app's terminal for now that would make this setting would be fine until you have a full fix.
We will make a new release which contains a env file at
There the max-old-space can be set/overwriten temporarily for the import. The test json in this case worked with a 2Gb limit for me.
The file can be changed using the file manger from the cloudron dashboard or webterminal. Once changed, the app has to be restarted.
Of course first update your ghost instance to latest package version 3.126.1
@tkd Docs are here for the new package - https://cloudron.io/documentation/apps/ghost/#importing
Thanks guys, managed to get this working with the new package
