Import large file


I need to upload a very large file as a table. Where can I augment the current size limit?

Thanks a lot

Hey @ozzz,

Are you self hosting your own version of Baserow or using ?

Unfortunately currently it isn’t possible to upgrade this on In the self hosted version you only currently increase the max import size limit by directly changing Baserow’s code.

If you are comfortable with changing the code directly, know what you are doing, and are also self hosting then you can try increasing the maxSize variable found in web-frontend/modules/database/components/table/TableCSVImporter.vue:152 and then rebuilding and restarting baserow.

Thank you so much.

I am using a self hosted version :slight_smile:

There is now an issue tracking this and the ability to configure this in the self hosted version is coming soon :slight_smile: Remove the user upload file size limit by default (#788) · Issues · Bram Wiepjes / baserow · GitLab


Do you bring back the limitation on the hosted version?

Thank you

The limitation of uploading 5000 rows has always been in the hosted version. This is because of performance reasons and we’re working on fix as we speak (Import data when creating a table asynchronously via a Celery task instead of via the web-frontend (#949) · Issues · Bram Wiepjes / baserow · GitLab), The limit will probably be disabled after the next release. The limit does not exist in the self hosted version.
