Add From Server
Any good alternatives to Add From Server (3 posts)

    There are quite a few threads here on problems related to uploading multiple files using Add From Server.

    I'm having great difficulty uploading typically 400-600 images files at a time. Get some traction if I limit the batch size to around 10 images each time.

    Does anyone know of an alternative to this plugin which works for large file numbers?

    Would like to keep posted on this topic. The issue could be on the server side, not the plugin side...but unfortunately I'm stuck on GoDaddy so if anyone finds a work-around I would appreciate it!!

    ... I wonder if the script is timing out for you. If that is the case, there is a PHP installation variable (your hosting service should be able to help you with that) which defines the maximum execution time for any php script. With that volume I suppose you may be hitting the that limit (just a hunch as I've had similar problems with other plugins because of this).

    A work around is to have the javascript itself break down the calls such that it would make a series of sequential calls (say in blocks of 10 as you suggest) back to the server instead of one big one with all of the files.

    (I'm sure there are developers here quite able to put it together... I might even give it a go when I get some free time)
