Hi

I need to upload large files (10 to 30Mo) using a web form. How can I prevent from the famous "timeout" returned by the browsers after a few seconds? The action run after the submission of the form is scripted in PHP 5.2

At the beginning of your script:

set_time_limit(0);

Also, add this to your uploader directory's .htaccess (where the script performing the uploader is)

php_value max_input_time 0

And do you have php configured to allow uploads that large? ( upload_max_filesize and post_max_size )?

If not, you can add this to the .htaccess as well:

php_value upload_max_filesize 40M
php_value post_max_size 40M
0
