Large file upload and Dreamhost

I want to allow uploading large files (50 mb+) through a web form with
rails on a dreamhost shared server.

With a normal http post (of course), it doesn’t work.

So I tried an FTP upload, but even then, it doesn’t work.

Should working with threads or some kind of progress indicator (and
keeping querying the server) be of any help?

Any input is welcome.

Why not? On my server (apache2, mod_proxy, mongrel) we regularly upload
50mb+ files… takes awhile, but it works, and I’m not doing anything
special…

perhaps dreamhost has put some limit in there that can be removed?
