You didn't say what framework/backend language you are using.

When it comes to Rails, the only way to do it as far as I know is by  
adding the mongrel_progress plugin to mongrel and serving your app  
that way. You need full access to the VPS/server to do it.


Flash-based uploaders are a lot easier, they monitor upload progress  
clientside and don't need serverside "hacks" nor a periodical updater  
firing off requests every few seconds to monitor progress.

I doubt there's any ready-made just-plug-something-in solution out  
there, because you really need to understand what you are actually  

For SWFUpload gotchas in Rails applications, I'm referring to a thread  
I participated in a while ago detailing all the steps needed to take  
to get SWFUpload to work seamlessly with Rails > 2. Most of the stuff  
that's in there will probably apply to other frameworks too (maybe a  
slightly different implementatio). If the javascript and tips are  
totally gibberish for you, I would go for a simple non-ajax upload  
until you're more familiar with clientside web technology.
