CentOS 5.x | Apache 2
I'm setting up an instance of w2box on my web server. It basically uses a standard perl script (upload.cgi) to store a file being posted.
As a test, I'm trying to upload an ubuntu ISO (716 MB). However, when I examine the apache access logs I see this:
- [07/Jul/2010:03:08:44 +0400] "POST /upload.cgi?sid=a4984a5sdkfjhsdkfhsdk68ef1c25f5931&maxsize=1073741824 HTTP/1.1" 500 636
My PHP limits are:
My question though is, why is the maxsize so high in the POST url? Does the web browser do some extra encoding that bloats the size of data?
If I want to support uploads of up to 1 GB, what would my php memory values need to be?
