First I would try to isolate the problem by removing the network
from the equation.

1. Try ftping or scp a file from the client machine to the server and the
note the difference between that and your script.
2. Comment out the  copy() line in your upload script to see if that
really make a difference.

3.  Add a timer to the script to see how long it actually takes to do it's

4  Run "top" and "free -m" in separate  terminals  to see how the server
is reacting to your script as it executes.

5. Try out Zend's debug server, it might be of some use in this situation.

Good luck.
