    Dear All,

    In Php we can limit the uploading file size
    by php.ini configuration file. But In python what
    way we can limit the file uploading size.
    kindly let me know.

    Hello Prabahar,

    It entirely depends on the mechanism you are using to receive the file
    (there is no generic solution).

    Is it within a CGI ? The normal way would be to check the file sized
    and discard if it's too big. You'll have to do it within your code -
    but it's probably a one line check !

    Best Regards,

    Unlike PHP, Python is a general-purpose language that is not targetted
    specifically at the web, so it has no native concept of "uploading".

    You can do this by using the LimitRequestBody directive in your Apache
    configuration or .htaccess file.
