Knowledge base articles you may find useful no. 6

It has been a month since I published my last post on KB articles that you may find interesting, so it’s time for a new set of articles which may help you deliver the functionality you need.
This time I will start with very helpful information about our staging module when synchronizing bigger files. You may receive error message like this one:

The request failed with HTTP status 404: Not Found

What you need to do to avoid this error is described in Brian McKeiver’s  quick tip blog post: Staging large files. Additionaly, you may need to change the request limits in your IIS too (IIS 7.5).
