php ftp problem

I am using the following code to ftp images to the server.  This code works fine for small files but Fails for files that are 1mb or more.

I need to ftp files of 8 and 9MB Is there a setting to allow larger ftp's?


// set up basic connection
$ftp_server = "";
$conn_id = ftp_connect($ftp_server);

// login with username and password
$ftp_user_name = "name";
$ftp_password = "password";
$login_result = ftp_login($conn_id, $ftp_user_name, $ftp_password);

// check connection
if ((!$conn_id) || (!$login_result)) {
       echo "FTP connection has failed!\n";
       echo "Attempted to connect to $ftp_server for user $ftp_user_name";
   } else {
       echo "Connected to $ftp_server, for user $ftp_user_name";
// upload the file  

$destination_file = './new.pdf';
$source_file = $_FILES['imagefile']['tmp_name'];
$upload = ftp_put($conn_id, $destination_file, $source_file, FTP_ASCII);

// check upload status
if (!$upload) {
       echo "FTP upload has failed!";
   } else {
       echo "Uploaded $source_file to $ftp_server as $destination_file";
// close the FTP stream

I think you might have to change the configurations in your php.ini file.

I have already altered the ini withthe following

php_value upload_max_filesize "25M"
    php_value post_max_size "35M"
    php_value memory_limit "70M"
    php_value max_execution_time "0"

I think there may be another setting that is limiting my filesizw I thought it might be in the php.conf file but There does not appear to be a php.conf file on our server.

Any suggestions?
open php.ini ...

find ....

"max_execution_time = 30     ; Maximum execution time of each script, in seconds"

higher file sizes take longer to uplaod and is probably timing out your script execution checks ...

increase the number ...

save the file ...

restart server.

test it
