    Public access to big files: public ftp? howto...

    Hello,

    I need grant open access to big files (from 2 to 30Mb). My CMS (drupal) and, in general, Apache / http soft have limits to do it... (I suppose http is not optimized to do it).

    What's a good option to do it? I've thought an FTP public account could suit my needs...

    1) Is it a good option?
    2) How could I create it by cpanel?

    Regards

    Nowadays files 30Mb are not considered big.
    And to be honest, I dont see what limits HTTP has, on the contrary, many firewals drop non standard ports, e.g 80 443 not to mention the fact that some users might not know how to use FTP

    My option would be to use HTTP links, just upload the files either through cPanel or use an FTP client, but be careful with your bandwidth.

    Hi Naz,

    I've talking about this php.ini (apache) limit: "upload_max_filesize" (usually at 2Mb).

    But I think you are purposing this:

    1) I upload the file by ftp
    2) I've attach the file using an http (<a href="...) link (or, in drupal, a module like it: http://drupal.org/project/filefield_sources )

    It sounds pretty simple and nice for me... Not if I must let other web users do, but this is not my need, by now.

    Regards

    If you want to use a PHP script to upload the files, you have to change the PHP *_max_* values.

    Depending from your server configuration, e.g. if runing PHP as CGI, you can put a php.ini file where your upload script is, with the following settings.
    upload_max_filesize = 40M
    post_max_size = 50M

    To check if it i working create a php file and put this in it
    PHP Code:
    echo ini_get('upload_max_filesize'
    But changing the *_max_* values might create problems with PHP memory, either-way you must play with the settings and see if it works for you.

    I want some friends I can go level with or take some ops. Hard to find people on during my play time because I'm in the USA. I am currently Protopharma but I can switch on my own to whichever faction. I prefer anti-city.
