Nginx client body max size limit

Recently we faced an issue while uploading a large file to nexus with nginx throwing error,

413 Request Entity Too Large

413 Request Entity Too Large


File size we are trying to upload is of 2.7G , is it recommended to increase the nginx file limit ? I see this leads to security and performance related issues while checking online. Any suggestions on this ?


This is entirely decided by your environment the files you’re trying to upload.
