I am having trouble uploading files through a form when using Apache
(production) or Lighttpd (development). The odd thing is that when I
script/server to load Webrick, the upload works just fine on the same
When it fails, the upload just sits there forever. Some browsers
return an error code, others spin for a long time… Anyway, it never
The file is a 1.7MB SWF (Flash) file and we’re using File Column.
Since it happens on Apache and Lighttpd, I’m thinking either:

MIME issues of some kind?? I dunno about this one but I’ve tried
everything so I’m looking at strange stuff. Both have entries for SWF
in their MIME types though, so this shouldn’t be a problem, right?
Anyway, I’m on MacOS X 10.4.
Has anyone seen anything like this? Any help appreciated.
