That has nothing to do with the server limits. You can't change that per scripting.

sorry, I did not released you want to get those images to your email box

This script will upload images to a folder inside your webpage on the server and than is possible to use ftp client like:

http://filezilla-project.org/download.php

to get them on your computer ...

FTP client? Email? Nonsense!

You simply do not understand what's the thread is all about, men.
And you obviously are clueless regarding web technologies and how they work.

There is at any server an upload limit via HTTP protocol. That's what we discuss here.
FTP is something completely different but possible of course.

Hi Jason,

please read my last post again.

I have mentioned email in my first line only and I have apologized ...

The rest is different solution and it has nothing to do with email.

I am trying to help

Re: how can I allow people to send my your photos?

We talked about the HTTP upload limit on the common server in the last posts. I did respond to the posts which discusses that. And there is a limit configured on the server by the server administrations. So it is actually senseless to write somthing into the server scripts which does not fit to the server configuration.

The website mentioned in the starting post uses obviously such HTTP upload and an email notification. So if you want that functionality you have to understand how it all is working and must own a user configurable server and some smart server side coding skills. A simple script does not solve that problem.

You also can't upload something to an email account directly via HTTP what the initial poster suggested. One must have a user configurable web server with a server side code that actually manages all the uploaded files on the server and sends out the required email notifications. Email is sent by SMTP or other protocols by the way. In that case it is managed by the server too. So there is basicly no "simple" HTML code which can be embedded into a website to achieve such complex functionality.

So I actually did understand the topic.
In fact, I did already code such solutions.

Re: how can I allow people to send my your photos?

jason,

when I installed this script:
http://www.webdeveloper.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=101466
on a web server I was facing a problem with the maximum file size.

Than I have changed the value of a max file size in this file "multiple.upload.form.php" which is a part of the script described above to this value:

--------
// set a max file size for the html upload form
$max_file_size = 700000000; // size in bytes
--------

and everything works fine for me. Perhaps you will still need to add several "zeros" to be able to upload larger files.

If it is not going to work for you, you can contact your administrator and he should be able to change the max file size for you.


But in the case when you need to transfer 100 MB+ FTP is the best solution I think. I did not hear about FTP limits if you have enough disk space on your server side.

Re: how can I allow people to send my your photos?

Yes. that works.
Do you actually know what that number means?

That are Bytes, man.
No matter what you put in there of higher values.
The usual way to get the real upload limit is to use the PHP info function.
Normal limits are 8 to 10 Megabytes. (HTTP also isn't exactly the best file transfer method and may collapse from time to time.)

Many people have a server, which can't be configured. And there usually is no "Administrator" for them available. They have to live with the standards then. (Mostly low budget customer services). Some of them even may not allow the installation of PHP scripts and other required things for that functionality, like allowing file storage...

Re: how can I allow people to send my your photos?

BTW: Public FTP upload would also be (a much more simple solution than all the others here).

But there also: you mostly need a professional grade account on a server to give your customers protected FTP access. Otherwise they are able to completely skew up all your files on the server, your own and the files of your other customers...

With all methods spoken here, asking the customers for sending their files per email is the most simple solution. With public upload services they usually have to register. Everybody actually should have an e-mail client on the desktop nowadays...

BTW: You also can easily send larger files with Skype & Co. But I do not know whether there are some size limits. Even torrent is a very good alternative for extra large files...

"the PHP info function" will give you only info about php.ini file which is main PHP configuration file.

People have to be aware of their priorities hamburgers or pro webhosting?
