Laknath Semage's Blog:
PHP + Large files
Dec 02, 2008 @ 12:07:08

Laknath Semage submitted a new blog post he's written up about working with large file uploads in your PHP applications.

If we want to do large file uploads or database updates with PHP there are few configurations to be done to default settings and I’m putting this as a note to myself (I’m always keep forgetting this) as well as to any one who may find this useful like when importing a large backup file through phpMyAdmin.

There's four php.ini settings he recommends checking as well as two values to change if you do have the need to upload a large import file back into a phpMyAdmin installation (ExecTimeLimit, MemoryLimit).
