I've done a site that takes uploaded files as large as 24 Mb, and the max_execution_time is only set to 50. It seems that the several minutes it takes for the upload to go from client to server isn't counted as execution time because nothing is happening at the server. Perhaps whatever process you're using for handling multiple files causes the timeout?
I'd love to hear how you resolve the problem, because I need to do a multiple file upload system soon. <http://www.php.net/manual/en/features.file-upload.php> HTH -- Lowell Allen -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
