Is there anyway to upload large (at the most 65MB) files without and FTP client?
I'm trying to set up a gaming site, and users will want to upload their files to my rented server space. The admin tells me their is a scripting upload limit of 8MB, and that I'll have to use FTP to upload anything larger (FTP://mydomain.com).
How to do that thru my website? I'm running a Joomla site, but I can plug in code into modules that people can use.
Here's what my rent-a-server guy told me: The file upload size via a script is 8mb - too little for what I need. He said the only way to upload larger files was thru FTP - which I would have to ask each user to boot up an FTP client and sent it up to my server - a pain.
I'm running Joomla, and came across DocMan, a file management program that also allows uploads. So, I tried uploading a larger file - 55MB, and it worked! It also lets you transfer a file from one server to another directly. Pretty nice. I don't know how it got around their "limit" - but it looks as though it has. I'm not saying this is going to be THE solution - some problem might crop up - but it's looking good.
