[opencms-dev] upload big file problem

if you are starting tomcat as a service, you can set the initial memory
pool and maximum memory in the tomcat confoguration panel (java tab) on
windows (if you are usinf tomcat 5.5.x), unless you shall set the
CATALINA_OPTS=.-Xmx512 in catalina.bat or startup.bat and reinsall the
service, so that changes can take effect, I think for tomacat 4.1 there
was a service.bat file which could do this. You shall also set the
max_allowed_packet variable of your mysql (in my.ini) to 20 MB for
example. Now you should be able to upload big files up to 16 MB, for
uploading files > 16 MB visit this thread on our site:

I have added the varibles on my server Windows 2003 but seems not work.
Where can I check the Heap Size? And there is some document state that
the Heap Size cannot be changed after JVM 1.4.2. Is it correct? Please

Thanks and Regards,

Hi all, 

I get a problem from uploading large file to my opencms system. There is
a message "Java Heap Space". I think the problem come from the memory
setting in JVM. I want to increase the Java Heap Momory Size in the
system by typing "java -Xms512m -Xmx512m" in the command prompt but
failed. Do anyone know the syntax? And what place i have to include this
command to permanently set the value? 

opencms version: 6.02 
tomcat: 4.1 

Thanks your help!
Matt Yim
