Server Timeout - Modify Global.asa file

How can I modify the global.asa file to allow for the server not to time out so fast?

We have a page that allows the user to upload images however some times the images are quite large and thus sometimes they get a Server Timeout error.

I have been told to place a line of code in the Global.asa file, can anyone assist me here on what to place?

This is what we have that works for the upload:
-----------------------------------------------
function Session_OnStart() {
     var objConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection");
        objConn.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=e:\\virtualhosts\\*********\\********.mdb;Mode=ReadWrite;Persist Security Info=False";
     objConn.ConnectionTimeout = 0;
     objConn.Mode = adModeReadWrite;
     objConn.CursorLocation = adUseClient;
     Session("objConn")=objConn;
        Session("userStatus")="unauthorized";
        Session("userID")=0;
        Session("strUploadPath") = "e:\\virtualhosts\\*********\\********";
        Application("ActiveVisitors")++;
}
------------------------------------------------

I would only change the timeout for the pages working with the upload

you can change it on a page level by adding

dim intOldTimeOut
intOldTimeOut = server.scriptTimeout
server.scriptTimeout = 120 'to make it 120 seconds

at the bottom of the page add
server.scriptTimeout = intOldTimeOut

the next thing I would change is I would remove the connection from the global.asa file.  Create you connections on the asp pages needing it and close it after you are finished with it on every page.

you can set the server.scriptTimeout very high.  I have used as much as 600 which would be 10 minutes.

FYI, the default value is 90 and I can find no limits in documentation on how high you can set it.

Thanks, now to pick apart my global file and figure out what I need on that page. (My db guys are away on vacation and I am left figuring this stuff out.)

Thanks!

John, We have two areas of the global.asa file. Can you recommend what I should do to have it work on the page level as you stated - only on that one file though.

I just can not afford to have this part of the site go down for any length of time. I would like to keep the global.asa file in place but remove if possible the upload part and place it on the page that has the upload, therefore hoping to keep the extended session only on that one script.

Is this possible? What would I include?
