Yes I have it saved....

However I'm unable to upload it since it says the file limit is no more than 500kb and mine is 1.8mb or something

It worked, indeed.
This is what we can read in your log:

Starts downloading Syria map:
Quote:
00000.078 INFO : cmdline: "C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\bin\dcs_updater.exe" --apply *install SYRIA_terrain
Starts from scratch since no downloaded Syria files has been found so far. 47 GB of data will be downloaded.

Then, as soon as downloading starts, you have A LOT of "Got incomplete data" errors. A LOT means an average of 48 error messages/second.

Eventually, after 5 minutes of non-stop error messages, your downloader gets timeout errors:
Quote:
ERROR: Got Curl error ( 28 ): Timeout was reached
...
ERROR: 5 connection fails
STATUS: Server capacity may be limited at the moment. Please, try again later.

It looks as though your connection to DCS download server had hiccups. Is your internet connection stable?

My internet connection it stable indeed. I've also tried this in two different locations, one of which has fiber optics, so it should download smoothly but it doesn't

OK, then you should look into these directories, empty them, and retry downloading Syria module:
  • C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\terrains\Syria
  • C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\_downloads
And if that doesn't work, try replacing your DCS_updater.exe with this one.

I found Syria in the second directory you posted, not the first one. I deleted the Syria folder and am gonna try it now
