Big uploads and big timeouts

Permalink Browser Info Environment
The first thing to understand about uploading big files and consequently needing a big timeout long enough to accommodate the the upload, is that whatever settings you make in Front End File Uploader, there will still be limits imposed by your web server (Apache, phpini etc.) that are outside the scope of Front End File Uploader and Concrete5. Contact your hosting provider for deatils.

There may also be limits set by your internet connection, such as on a 3G mobile phone.

With that understood, for big files on the 'Upload Processing' tab of the Front End File Uploader edit dialog you can uncheck the 'limit on upload size' option and, if the your file uploads will take more than 200 seconds, check the 'Enable big timeouts' option. This changes the scale of the timeout slider from 1-200 seconds to 1-200 minutes.
