Error: failed to create: Request entity too large: limit is 3145728 | Helm Charts

This error might occur when you try to install a Kubernetes cluster via Helm Charts. This specifically occurs during only certain scenarios when there are files which are not part of charts are inside the chart directory. If you have some files which are not part of the charts then add them into .helm ignore within the charts directory then the error would go away

Was trying to use to Helm chart to install mastadon and was frequently running into this error

The reason is, I had helm.exe within the chart folder, when I added helm.exe into helm.ignore, I was able to run the install command successfully without any issues after adding it

So if you have got any stray files inside your directory add them to .helmignore. Multiple users have reported the same issue over here – and the solution was the same as I have described above
