I'm using -
<FORM NAME=UPLOADFORM ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" ACTION="/cgi-bin/u
to upload code to my server.
This upload is then read using the following, which is typical for uploads
while (my $bytesread = read($filesource, my $buffer,1024))
print OUTFILE $buffer;
THe problem I'm having is that the upload times out for large files (in the order of 3 Megs) - I'm getting the usual "Cannot Find Server Message" after about 5 mins. This upload works for other users on the server, so I guess the upload speed is the main issue here - I'm using a 56K modem. I searched the net and found a similar complaint from another perl programmer. He said he had even raised the application timeout to 3000 seconds ( something I know nothing about but can at least appreciate) and this didn't help matters. I tried uploading the file to my tripod a/c using their browser upload facility and got the same timeout after a number of minutes - so their site seems to have a similar fault. Anyone know whats going wrong and what I can do to fix it.
