I built an uploader which works fine on decently sized files.

When I upload say a 2mb picture however, everything appears to be working fine - all the progress indicators, on completes operate as usual.... but then the file never shows up on the server?

I realize this is pretty vague, lacking code examples, but I just wanted to kind of put a general question out there, see if anyone suspects anything right off the bat..

ie, is it maybe something more wrong with my server?
flash dosent have some upload limit i dont know about?
?

well, both can be possible.
Your server may limit the file uploads to a certain size. If you have an apache server + php, then check out config php for uploads
As for flash, i don't know if it has a limit set to 2mb

Hey there,

Your upload might be timing out.

I would check your upload script. If it is working for smaller photos, it should work for larger ones. The only reason I can think of that it would not is the time out issue.

With coldfusion, I have to do something like this:

<cfsetting requestTimeOut = "30000">

There is probably something similar for other languages.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Travis Walters

Thanks for the replies.

IceCold - looked into what you said and sure enough my php server had an upload limit of 2M.

I think this problem is occurring because your upload might be timing out.

I will now see your upload script. If it is working for smaller photos, it should work for larger ones. The only reason I can think of that it would not be a big issue..
