Solve '413 Request Entity Too Large' error

If you are self-hosted, you may run into an issue when attempting to upload a data set to the WorkBench that is larger than your server is configured to handle.

This is because many data sets are larger than the default size allowed by nginx.

You may see the following error:

413 Request Entity Too Large

This is being displayed becuase of the web server, not Specify.

It happens because the size of the data set you are trying to import is larger than 1MB.

You can change that limit to something like 500M (500 megabytes) by following this guide:

In short, you need to add the client_max_body_size 500M; line in nginx.conf file and restart the nginx container.
