I have tried using the documented approach of adding the parameter to Neo-runtime.xml (the param was not in the file at all, I added it)
The documented approach is to set the maximum number of post request parameters or the maximum size of post data on the page Server Settings >> Settings in the ColdFusion Administrator.
Thanks, but this is CF 9.0.0 and 9.0.2. PostParametersLimit is not exposed on the Administrator page (PostSizeLimit is, but that does not help for number of fields).
see ColdFusion 9.0 Update 2 Release Notes
I am on version 10, so I can only see your point now. In any case, I would suggest you check yourself whether PostParametersLimit is in the list of variables which can be set as above.
To do so, open http://yourdomain/CFIDE/adminapi/runtime.cfc. Then look at the list under setRuntimeProperty.
Good suggestion. I have already looked, this new param is not listed in runtime.cfc, nor anywhere else in CFIDE/adminapi.
The manual setting of the variable was overwritten by a copy of the file during our reload and restart. Changing the order resolved that.
We still have not found a method to query the value, at least we can set it in CF9 by editng the xml.
Thanks for the suggestions.
Can you explain what you mean about "changing the order"? and was the duplicate copy
the same filename?
