Files Stop Uploading Before Finish

#1 Postby rlfcycle » Nov 22, 2006 6:12 pm

Hi. In Xupload 2.2, everything is configured correctly and I have set the parameters in XUploadConfig for 4 files max at 70,000,000 kb total.

I have no trouble uploading files about 2,000,000 kb and below. Above that, they seem to get stuck.

I've tried the .htaccess solution to no avail.

Other thoughts? Perhaps questions for my web host?

Lots of files in the "temp" folder.

Thanks

The problem is inside Apache. Only since 2.2 version you can handle file uploads >2Gb

Large File Support feature added in 2.2: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/new_features_2_2.html

More on File Upload Truncation

#3 Postby rlfcycle » Nov 23, 2006 2:02 pm

Pilgrim - I do not understand your response. My files are not loading past the 3 mb point, so the fact that Apache truncates above 2.2 gb does not sound like it's the problem.

So, to restate, I have the max files set at 70,000,000 kb, or 70,000 mb

The files stop loading at around 3,000,000 kb, or 3mb.

Any thoughts?

My thought are: 1Gb = 1024 Mb = 1024*1024 Kb (1, 000, 000), so 3,000,000 kb = 3 Gb (not 3mb)
Note that your limit is in Kb = 1024 Bytes.

The only another reason why upload can stop after reaching some limit - your discspace can be exceeded, or you're on very slow connection and progress bar connection breaks somehow.

Did you check your upload limit with your web host?

My previous host had set the limit to 2MB (and refused to increase it!!) and my current host had set the limit to 8MB but increased it across the whole server to 16MB when I asked them to.

Truncation

#6 Postby rlfcycle » Nov 24, 2006 6:06 pm

Tubbly - this is an excellent thought - I'll check with my webhost.

Pilgrim - forgive my ignorance about bits and bytes. The uploader says that the max file size is 58000 mb, more than sufficient to upload file sizes of 3 -10 mb, which is what I need this for.

I'm uploading at 50 kb/sec on my dsl.

It seems to slow down to about 30kb/sec and then goes to zero. Sometimes it works fine though. For example, I was successful uploading a 7 mb file yesterday and then today I had trouble with 3mb.

Any other thoughts or possible changes to the script?

Thanks to all.

Don't think script is guilty. It works fine for many other servers.
Upload process is standart CGI upload, shouldn't be problems there. What do you receive in progress bar? "Upload Failed" error or it just stop after some time?
PM me the link to your upload form to test it.
