Upload image via URL gives an error

I’m trying to upload an image via URL but get an error (?)

I’m in self-host mode.

Thanks for direction,


Hey @Baserow_rookie thanks for pointing out this bug. It was introduced in 1.9 and we’ll be fixing it in 1.11, see Fix uploading files via url by default crashing due to MemoryError (#997) · Issues · Bram Wiepjes / baserow · GitLab to track this bug.

Until 1.11 a temporary “fix” is if you are able to make changes to the backend/src/baserow/config/settings/base.py File you can fix this issue temporarily by editing the following line:

USER_FILE_SIZE_LIMIT = 1024 * 1024 * 1024 * 1024  # ~1TB

To instead be something like

USER_FILE_SIZE_LIMIT = 1024 * 1024 * 20  # 20MB

This will fix your upload but limit the upload size back to 20MB.
