Large uploads with attchment-fu

Hi
I am trying to upload 30mb files with attachment-fu, these seem to
just hang. (works file for small image files)
I am using mongrel cluster and nginx…

Does anyone have any advice?

Thanks

Richard

Check your nginx conf file and set the client_max_body property to
something higher:

client_max_body_size 50M;

It could probably be a number of other things too, but your
information is so limited it’s just guess work. Try and isolate the
problem to either your rails app, mongrel or nginx.

maybe you got a limit in your database. you could set
max_allowed_packet = 32M

look here: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/packet-too-large.html

Peter,

Thanks for your reply, yes I should have posted the nginx.conf
contents.

But yes you were right.

It was the client_max_body_size, I changed this in the nginx.conf then
it worked!

Thanks so much for your help.

Thanks for the reply,

As Peter suggested I didn’t write enough about my problem, I was no
actually saving my file into the database, I was saving into the file
system. But thanks for the advice. On a db based file save your answer
may have been another reason also.

All the best

Richard
