This module provides a space for clients to upload files over HTTP, as
used by [Conversations](


mod\_http\_upload relies on Prosodys HTTP server and mod\_http for
serving HTTP requests. See [Prosodys HTTP server
documentation]( for information about how to
configure ports, HTTP Host names etc.

The module can either be configured as a component or added to an
existing host or component. Possible configuration variants are as


You can configure it as a standalone component:

    Component "" "http_upload"

Existing component

Or add it to an existing component:

    Component "" "proxy65"
    modules_enabled = {

On VirtualHosts

Or load it directly on hosts:

    -- In the Global section or under a specific VirtualHosts line
    modules_enabled = {
      -- other modules


A maximum file size can be set by:

``` {.lua}
http_upload_file_size_limit = 10 * 1024 * 1024 -- this is 10MB in bytes


Works with Prosody 0.9.x and later.
