Large file moves through a web site

We are running into issues with large file moves timing out on the request.

We support a FTP type web site where clients can upload and move large files through a web interface.

Typically, we've been moving the file through simple file functions within the programming language (cold fusion). It's worked fairly well, until the file size reaches a point where the request times out.

So we are looking for an alternative solution or software to transfer files through the web site that will still allow a user to work through a web interface.

Has anyone heard or used such a product, or has a recommendation?

Open Cold Fusion Administrator and go to the server settings.

Then simply change the time available before a time out occurs, or uncheck the box so the user will never time out.

But be careful, all of the server resources will be on this one request until it is completed, and will not get to any other requests in que until then.
