Save Site as Template .stp 10mb Limit

Wednesday, 9 July 2008

If you've ever tried to save a SharePoint site as a template file (.stp) you may have noticed a check box to 'Include Content', Great! a quick and dirty way to migrate a SharePoint site.

Notquite! Issue is there is a 10MB hard coded limit....

You can however use the command line tool - stsadm to increase the limit, I've tested to 524Mb or 524288000

run the following on the SharePoint Server:

stsadm -o setproperty -pn max-template-document-size -pv 524288000
