Using HTML form to upload files to server is really slow?
Posted on 2007-11-19
I have set up an HTML form to upload files to the server space I use but it is really slow, especially with files that are over 100 megabytes. I'm receiving handling the file upload form with a PHP page on an Apache server shared hosting on Godaddy (but I don't know if that is relevant).
Basically, is there any way to speed this up, does it have to do with server speed or is HTML form uploading just slow in general? Is there a way to use the FTP protocol for an HTML form upload?
What do you recommend for uploading files on webpages, files that are over 100 megabytes? Because I really need to find a way to speed things up and I believe FTP is much faster. Thanks!
