Upload stuck with big files

#1 Postby Guneyd » Mar 29, 2011 5:48 am


I've recently changed my server settings to a frontend/backend system of nginx and apache (nginx admin with cache). Right now, I'm still testing my filesharing site, but the upload for big files doesn't work anymore. See for yourselves @ www.bitupload.com

With big files the screen is stuck at the 'Upload Initializing...' part, but small files do work.

I've changed the client_max_body_size to 2000M from 10M, but that doesn't do the trick either.

Can someone please help me out with this?

This doesnt look like a sibsoft nginx conf.

You got 2 ip/hosts per server setting.

the first one should be pure apache..
second can be apache or nginx.

My guess is that you put nginx on ipbox 1.

Thank you for the reply. You're right about it not being the sibsoft nginx. I couldn't make use of just nginx alone (I'm also hosting other sites on the same server that need apache) http://nginxcp.com/ is the one I make use of.

But to let me get this straight. It is not a standard nginx thing? In apache it is all about changing the max upload size settings and such, isn't there something like that for nginx that perhaps could work?
