I think the best option, though not always the most liked is to use a CGI script (Perl/Python etc.) which can usually upload over 100MB, and by using one with a status it's alot more user friendly than watching a page do nothing for a few minutes.

I'm pretty sure you can change the maximum upload size in php.ini. It think it's set to like 8MB default.

This is a .44 Caliber Loveletter straight through my heart.

What i did to fix the upload_max_filesize is using .htaccess    look it up on google... don't forget to set the maxprocess time too...and there's another one too...hold on let me think :P .... max_execution_time max_input_time post_max_size upload_max_filesize

thx 2 all.
i find this online
Using a fresh install of PHP, it's always a problem for newbies specially if they're working offline there is a need to deal with big files. And if I start working with phpmyadmin I don't prefer to visit mysql console just to run my dump file. So in case you need to tweak your PHP to upload big files there is three parameters to change in php.ini

Why I'm posting this ? because I always change the first one upload_max_filesize and forget to tweak the others. Now I have to remember ...
