Status code 413 when image size is larger than maxFileSize

System Information
  • Strapi Version: 4.2.0
  • Operating System: MacOS
  • Database: MariaDB
  • Node Version: 16.15.1
  • NPM Version: 8.12.1

I have created a new Strapi project and I have configured a maxFileSize:


module.exports = [
    name: "strapi::body",
    config: {
      formidable: {
        maxFileSize: 487 * 1024, // multipart data, modify here limit of uploaded file size

When I try to upload a bigger image to test the change, I receive the warning:
Request failed with status code 413

I was expecting a friendly message saying something about the image size is too big. Right now, the message is not clear for our users.

@rrgt19, Have you found any resolution for this error? I’m also having the same error.
