What Nginx charm are you using? – Marlinc Jan 25 '14 at 12:02

Okay I've looked at the Nginx charm. It appears it puts the config in the default locations. These are /etc/nginx/nginx.conf for the main Nginx config and /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default for the default site config.

There is a option in these config files called client_max_body_size. Change this to a value like 20m to allow a upload limit of 20 megabyte.
