I have a project where I need to figure out how to let a user with an account to upload files as large as 4GB. For files this size, I don't think it can be done through a web form, can it?

So how's it done? what's the best way to upload files of this size?

thanks,

split the uploads and let them be able to recombine on server or make yourself a script to do the same recombination

Plus compress each section and untar or server

but just wondering will it not take age to upload such a file.
if such a file is loaded repetitively you will need storage in the range of zillion gigs :)

Hi Henry,

yes, it will take ages but the project is backend for specific users so it shouldn't be too bad.

Why not FTP?

Considering you said it was for specific users, you simply give them an FTP account which is limited to their own directory.
