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
totally gibberish for you, I would go for a simple non-ajax upload
until you're more familiar with clientside web technology.
