why does my server appear to freeze when I'm uploading photo

I'm using joomla! 1.5 and I've uploaded a heap of photo's into a sub-folder in the images/stories folder.

For some reason everything appears to freeze now whenever I try to upload another image.

Any clues??

You're out of webspace?  Looking at the joomla helpdesk and being a joomla user myself, the most common cause is that there is not enough free space to upload another pic.  Joomla doesnt check your webspace limits before attempting another upload - it just hangs when it cannot complete an upload.

no sorry I have tons of space left...

my web host isn't too keen on assisting with joomla! problems...

any other ideas?

are your images very large? in joomla global config you may need to change the size of images allowed to upload - better still optimize images before uploading

no only 200-300kb and they take about 2 mins. each to upload.  perhaps this is normal then?

is there a good extension to help manage this problem?

hmm ... not aware of an extension for this.. but I think Pearl_export_ben: has a point - not just disk space but bandwidth - would be worth asking your host about this also (and post feedback here for everyone's info)

no plenty of bandwidth & storage space available. I think it's also due to an admin re-install that has caused another problem (posted here:http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Content_Management/WebBased_CMS/Joomla/Q_24387660.html)
