FTP upload script timing out...

Recommended Posts


I've got an HTML/PHP upload script, the script uploads to an external server via FTP, however, when trying to upload bigger files (over a few MB) then the script times out. Smaller files work easily though, anyway, does anyone know of a solution for such a problem? Also, I use ...

<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="10000">

...for the max file size, I'd assume that's in KB not bytes, right? Would it be better to use php instead of this to determine the max file size?


Note: I do not have access to a php.ini file if it is needed...

Increase the execution time limit to something higher (or use zero for no limit). See:


The MAX_FILE_SIZE hidden field (measured in bytes) must precede the file input field, and its value is the maximum filesize accepted.
