Upload Script, NO size restriction!

Recommended Posts

i have a working php upload script, but it only allows about up to 7MB and then it just goes to the error.
i want it to NOT have ANY size restriction. but i havn't restricted any sizes!!!!
can anyone help me with this!?

[code=php:0]<?php
//restricting file types i don't want to be uploaded:
$bad_types = array('application/octet-stream','application/x-php');
//if it's a bad file type, then display error:
if( in_array( $_FILES['uploadedfile']['type'], $bad_types ) )
{
    echo "That File type is not supported.";
}
else
{
//otherwise continue on the upload:
$target_path = $target_path . basename( $_FILES['uploadedfile']['name']);
{
    if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['uploadedfile']['tmp_name'], $target_path)) {
        echo "your file HAS been uploaded!";
    } else{
        echo "There was an error uploading the file, please try again!";
    }
}
}
?>[/code]

if you call phpinfo() the setting "Configuration File (php.ini) Path " (about 5 lines down) tells you where it's located

I'm curious, why 10GB upload limit?  Does your webhost allow for such a high usage of bandwidth too?

Also if you're on a connection like OC48, uploading a file even remotely that large will take a really long time ;)

Crazy :)

Most browsers have a maximum 500MB limit, so anything over that is useless.
make sure to put a hidden input named "MAX_UPLOAD_FILESIZE" with the value as the max size in bytes.

Could always use a java applet uploader.
Kinda hefty but it would work better than PHP for such a large file
