Way to limit file upload size using file_column or attachment_fu

While I know this can be done with some flas based solutions, how can
one limit the size of an upload to an RoR application within the
application rather than via apache's configuration? I just don't want
anyone trying to upload a 100mb file.

thanks

Haven't used FileColumn though I know that you can configure the :size
parameter of has_attachment in attachment_fu. You'll subsequently want
to use the built-in validates_as_attachment too.

I've heard good stories about the Paperclip plugin - you might want to
check out that one too.

Check out Attachment Fu plugin. It has options for setting the max
limit on the size of the file that can be uploaded. I am no expert in
it, but don't need to. I just followed the recipes in Advanced Rails
Recipes by Mike Clark. Well worth the money since you can quickly
find out the answers to these questions.
