Hi, Is there a way to server files only below a certain size? eg. Return 403 on files bigger than 5MB?

Assuming you're talking about local filesystem files, you might try to proxy_pass back round to yourself, and do an if() based on $upstream_http_content_length. If you're already proxy'ing, you could use the same technique but without the double nginx hit. I'd personally look at /how/ too-large files are getting onto disk, and fix that, however.

Unfortunately the way big files are getting there is beyond my control. On Wed, Mar 6, 2013 at 5:30 PM, Jonathan Matthews

Are you saying that you do not have administrative control of your system? Jonathan is right - set policies that disallow large file sizes and enforce them. If necessary use chron to check for large files and remove them.
