Huge PDF upload to Reference
« on: February 08, 2009, 09:19:58 AM »
Okay who was it that wanted to share a 50 meg PDF file of a manual? 

Raise your right hand !   Here's your opportunity to test it.....
hopefully you have a better connection, than my puny 2 bars on stolen wifi.

Go to the Reference Category on the Forum, add a new post, describe the manual, and try uploading your 50 megabyte PDF and report the results.

Thanks

Jim,
Twice I tried to upload a 40M pdf file.
Each time it looked like it went about 40-50% (judging by the status bars at the bottom of my browser window) and then it would "time out" .

A note of clarification. 
It gets to the 40-50% within the first minute and then it just sits untill it times out. 
I will try at another time of day and I might try to split the file in half, just as a further test, if time permits.

UPDATE:
I just had exactly the same results with a 19M file.

Scott just uploaded 2 manuals (220 workshop) in the Technical Reference section using his FTP software.  One is 192 megs.  We are setting as a link (versus opening in the post window) for obvious reasons.  Thanks Scott !

apparently there is a problem with uploading large PDFs direct through this forum.

If anyone else has any, I'll probably need to give you direct access, but you'll need an FTP software program on your computer or get a free one (like coffee cup)

and email me for the server parameters to use
