413 Error in BlogStomp

BlogStomp is no longer our flagship blogging software, as we have replaced it with Storytailor.
We are still supporting the BlogStomp software and its users, but BlogStomp is no longer available for purchase. Learn more about Storytailor HERE.

A 413 error is a response from your server saying “Entity too large”. In english that means some part of the upload is too big for your server settings. Good news is that settings are made to be changed. The tricky bit is that a 413 can come from all sorts of places. What we need you to do is to contact your web host and get them to look into your log to see exactly which setting is causing it.

To help, here’s an email we’ve prepared for you to send to your web host.

Hi There,

I’m having trouble uploading a blogpost to my blog. I use a desktop publishing tool (BlogStomp) that posts via WordPress’s XMLRPC API.

When uploading I’m getting a 413 error, can you please help me resolve this?

Can you please check the logs for the source of the 413 errors?

BlogStomp technical support has told me that a server setting is limiting my post and that 413 errors often come from the following settings:

Nginx.conf (client_max_body_size)
Apache (LimitRequestBody directive in either .htaccess or httpd.conf)
PHP.ini (upload_max_filesize, post_max_size, etc)
IIS (uploadreadaheadsize config setting)

Can you please investigate this and amend the appropriate setting? My blogposts are mostly image based so I might need a bigger than normal allowance.


Happy Stomping!!
