File Drop: Cannot upload files larger than 100MB

Hi there,

With a public File Drop page, a user cannot upload files larger than ~100MB. Logged in users are fine, large uploads working okay inside Nextcloud, the issue just seems to be on public File Drop pages only. Visitors say this is error message they get:

We have not had this issue with past Nextcloud versions until Nextcloud 24.

We have configured the settings for nginx and PHP and the Nextcloud config according to the documentation.


Nextcloud version: 24.0.4
Operating system and version: Ubuntu 20.04.5 LTS
Web server: nginx/1.18.0 (Ubuntu)
PHP version: PHP 8.0.14

Steps to replicate:

  1. Share a folder and set to ‘File Drop’
  2. Visit link and upload a file larger than 100MB.

Hoping this will get a fix soon as it looks like an issue has been open for it since 2017: Allow chunked public upload · Issue #4109 · nextcloud/server · GitHub
