Instalation profiles limit size

Does anyone know what is the maximum size of a instalation profile?


  • I don't know if there is a maximum size, but our installation profile is over 66 thousands lines (3.2 MB) and there has been no problem. Hope that helps.

  • i have a 500MB installation profile, i generated the xml to include a lot of lists with the entire taxonomical hierarchy. and It just takes forever to load the dropdown and then to to do instalation, but it works in the end

  • There's no specific limit, but 500megs is pushing practicality.

  • would you recomend doing direct inserts in the database instead of generating such a big profile?

  • Normally you'd import the large lists separately, but whatever works works.
