Whenever an upload takes longer than 22 seconds, then the upload ends up with connection was reset error. On the server side, the connection is in FIN_WAIT2 state. The problem is, that apache2 Timeout is 300 seconds, max_input_time is 60 seconds.

I have no idea what else can be causing this.

  • Are you using a php file to upload files ? – krisFR Jan 20 '14 at 19:10
  • Yes .. I tried several scripts .. and even php file manager (phpfm.sourceforge.net) failed. – aa007 Jan 20 '14 at 19:32

To upload files using php you have to consider these settings in your php.ini file :

As a sample, my production server for file upload is setup like this :

upload_max_filesize = 2000M
post_max_size = 2000M
max_input_time = 60
memory_limit = 3092M
  • All of that is OK - when I change to https then everything is working correctly. So I guess it's a problem on my ISP's side, I hope they will be able to fix it. – aa007 Jan 24 '14 at 16:54
