Hey folks..

Anybody ever use APC to show upload progress?

It sounds really cool, but apc_fetch always returns false a value for
uploads. I can apc_add something and fetch it, but not for uploads : (
(set-up: php-apc 3.0.19, Apache2, php 5.2.10, no suhosin patch)

There is little info to google on this, and I've been through it.

I was hoping some hard core, tireless, php programmer just knew the answer.

With high anxiety, Phred

I recently had to do roughly the same thing (visual upload progress)
and I had done some research into APC.  What I learned was that the
upload tracking didn't work with FastCGI (which would have prevented
our switch to nginx, but not a deal breaker) and what broke the deal,
though, was the fact that APC's upload progress is apparently not
thread safe, so if person A is uploading a file and person B starts an
upload, you get a silent failure.  Which brings me to another point,
it seems to silently fail.

Ultimately, I went with a flash based solution because the APC
solution had way too many problems to be really useful.  It's a nice
thought, but I wouldn't recommend it.  I know this isn't exactly what
you wanted, but I had a similar experience and thought I would share

Dang! You are exactly right - that isn't what I wanted to hear! : (
But better to know now, then when my timeline is already used up.

Did you write your own flash based solution, or use an canned one?

Thanks, Phred
