PHP and File Uploading


This is driving me nuts! I am using Mozilla to upload some files via PHP onto my webserver. On some files like PHP-Nuke-6.8.tar.gz it says that the document contains no data....on konqueror it says the connection was broken.

I checked the php.ini file and it says my max size on file uploads is 10M, which these packages are well under. Other files may upload, things like documents and smaller tar-balled stuff.

if you uploaded via a POST, see php.ini's max_post_size

I think there are a few other max's - the smallest one is your bottleneck.

grep -i max php.ini

to see what all is being limited...

Tried

i doubled the size of the memory limit and the post size limit, which were originally at 8M anyway. My test subject was only 4M. Browser still says the file contains no data.

Does web upload works for other files, except for this particular file?

Maybe you could look at factors effecting script execution time.

File

it took a tar ball i had made this spring, about 2 Mb. How could I look into the execution time of it? My webserver is also my desktop and that is where I am tring to upload from.

I created a small test script....


So i try uploading a tgz file withthis size: 3,890,896 bytes.
And after a few dozen times, this shows up once in a while.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Request entity too large!

The POST method does not allow the data transmitted, or the data volume exceeds the capacity limit.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster

Error 413
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

in my php.ini file,

; Maximum size of POST data that PHP will accept.
post_max_size = 50M
; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
upload_max_filesize = 40M

these are rediculously high and the files are still not being accepted!
<<<VERY FRUSTRATED>>>

Have you tried using the actual size in bytes in the config directives. For example, insted of using 10M in the max_post_size and max_upload_size, use 10485760 as this is the number of bytes in 10MB. Check your memory limit in php.ini as well and use values in bytes and see how well that works.
