Flie upload times out with large files (6 posts)

    Yikes, I'm in a pickle. Easyfileshop works great . . . or would work great if I could actually get my files uploaded. Small files work (anything under 1MB or so) but the files I need to upload (my albums in a .zip folder) are between 50 and 150 MB . . . and they will not upload! Everything seems to go well for a bit, then the progress bar stops and I am sent back to the 'Posts' section of my admin screen (even though I am adding the file to a page). I check back to the page I tried to upload to and there is no price and no file uploaded. I've checked the FTP and the same is true: nothing is getting in. Permissions are set properly; small files work just fine.

    Please Help . . . I need to launch soon!

    . . OK, so I've discovered a workaround that appears to work. I upload a small txt file, renamed to the name of the large file I really want and upload it via the WordPress interface.

    Then I upload the real file via ftp (with a slightly different name) to the /easyfileshop/ folder. This also works just fine.

    Then, I swap names; taking note that easyfileshop adds a prefix to the file reflecting the post number: "postXXX_youroriginalfilename.file"

    Whew, crisis averted.

    I would still like to know what's causing the timeouts for those large files though.

    Hey exmachinae,

    there are several PHP (wordpress is written in php) settings, which cause the problem. You can raise these setting values of PHP. Just put a .htaccess file into the wp-admin folder or edit the existing .htaccess file with these large settings:

    php_value post_max_size 300M
    php_value upload_max_filesize 300M
    php_value memory_limit 300M
    php_value max_input_time 7200

    If you are on an shared host, you probably can't set these values.

    This shold solve your problem. But I like your workaround.

    Hi Felix,

    Can I use Easyfileshop with WP PDF Stamper plug-in?

    Thanks in advance,

    N.B. Your plug-in (your work) is clear and professional.

    Hi Pedro,

    thanx! I don't think that you can use both plugins working together. But I think WP PDF Stamper has the functionality to sell files.

    Regards Felix

    Ah that's a really cool workaround! I've just started to work with easy file shop, and I love this plugin. Felix I'm currently working on a hack that might enable affiliate commission through Paypal 'daisychaining' API. I'll keep you informed if it's successful :)
