How to increase the timeout for a SharePoint 2010 website

Posted By: Jeff Widmer     Posted Date: September 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Note: The SharePoint logs can be found at:     C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\LOGS To increase this timeout you will need to modify the web.config file for the SharePoint Website.  If you are using the default SharePoint configuration, then the web.config file will be found at: C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80\web.config Open this file in Notepad and then scroll down to the system.web > httpRuntime element (about half way down the file).  To increase the timeout, add the executionTimeout attribute to the httpRuntime element with a value of the number of seconds for the timeout.  For example, to increase the timeout to 5 minutes, add an executionTimeout of 300 like this: <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="51200" executionTimeout="300" /> In the default SharePoint Foundation 2010 web.config file it will look like this: Save the web.config file and now the timeout for HttpRequests will have been increased (Of course you need to ask why a request is taking more than 2

Hi I come across different authentication methods in Sharepoint 2010. The sharepoint website we are develpoing as of now is Intranet. Later we are planning to move it to Internet(Public) site. What will be the best way to implement authentication and authorization for our website. If windows authentication(Classic mode authentication) is default for a sharepoint website (2010) , I have a few questions ragarding windows authentication. 1) In case of windows authentication, where should we maintain  users? 2) In case of windows authentication, how are the users created? 3) In case of windows authentication, how can I perform authorization.   If we want to use FBA(Form based authentication) in sharepoint 2010, I have a few questions ragarding FBA in sharepoint 2010. 1) In case of FBA(using Claim based authentication) , if we want to use custom database(where we are storing user details and  roles) rather than bulitin SQL membership  provider, how can we achieve this? Can anyone provide some useful resources to implement authentication(Windows or FBA or dual) and authorization for a sharepoint 2010 website with sample code? Please reply ASAP.

The heartburn that I get with that approach is any site collection owner or designer can drag the file into the site collection and open the site up to unwanted client access issues.
