The last time I had to do something like this was for large video files
which could sometimes go beyond 2GB. In the end I allowed the files to
be transferred over FTP (with the same username/password that they
logged in via the web interface), but also included a Java applet in the
web interface as well so that it appeared to allow the upload as normal,
but behind the scenes it was all FTP. HTTP isn't great for large
uploads, but a protocol like FTP is perfectly suited for it.
