maxReceivedMessageSize="2147483647" maxBufferSize="2147483647" maxBufferPoolSize="2147483647" transferMode="Buffered"

Modify the max-file-size and max-request-size values in the application’s web.xml configuration file (for example, in the webapps/manager/WEB-INF/web.xml file).


Remember to restart your Tomcat server for the changes to take effect.
