i have an upload system in php, i want it to upload large files, some may get up to 200mb. This means that it will not only take a lot f bandwidth, server memory space but also a lot of time to upload these files.
Now i have a system working, but it seems to fail when trying to upload a large file. I've tested it with a a file that is 22mb and it works like a charm, whoever, when i up this to a file that is about 89.4mb it fails, it goes through the whole upload process but when it tries to post the file it gives me an error.
No i have changed a number of settings in the php.ini file:
I then realised that my IIS server has an execution time limit set and that was at about 2 minutes so i made this about 30 (note in testing i the upload of the 80.4mb file was around 23 minutes or so). Error i get is "404 - File or directory not found". This is strange because to doesn't do it for the smaller file.
The only thing i can think of is that there is a setting somewhere in my Windows Server that is stopping my system from moving such a big file from temp files to the correct directory.... Or maybe the temp files cannot handle such a file size?
So, i was wondering if someone could write a check list of the settings that need to be updated in order to upload large files like this because i am almost there, it's just something is stopping me.
Thanks in advance.
