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.
Any help would be appreciated!
Even php has a file size limit parameter for the server.
Unless you ask the server administrator to change
the file size in php.ini and restart the server, I
can't think of anything helpful here.
I'm looking for answer on this topic too.
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.
It breaks the file up into packets, getting around the server's UL limit, then reassembles it on the server. I've uploaded as much as a 225MB file in one shot.
