    Hi my name is Alex.

    I am gratefull for your plugin.

    Is there any possibility tha I should copy csv file to server (cca from 20 to 50mb) and to import it in one step?

    At this moment, because of server settings that I cannot change, I am spliting csv to 1.8Mb files (10 to 25 pieces ... )

    Thanks for any answer.

    So, I assume you'd upload the file somewhere via ftp or you'd want to specify a url to pull the file from?

    Yes indeed.
    In the meantime, I installed WAMP to make life to my "hosting manager" easyer .. :)
    But still, I am making several files so I can control everything ..
    I did some tweaking to wamp so I can upload bigger files, and the proccess can last much longer.
    So wamp is solution for me.
    On the other side, I beleive thet it will be very exhausting for the server.
    Anyway, thank you for reply.
    As I can see now, this idea will not help because most of hosting doesnt allow uploading files bigger than 2mb.

    I built a version of this plugin that allows you to upload images (or files I suppose). It uses cURL to pull the file down and then fopen to save the file. http://pastebin.com/3TQ2Y6fr

    You put in fields called csv_image1, csv_image2, etc. with a url to download
