10 years ago
If I try to upload large files the system disconnects. is there anyway to stop this?
if WP uses PHP to handle form uploads, then there may be a limit set in the PHP.INI file of some number of MB. Normal installations of PHP has this set at 8MB I believe. Your hosting provider should be able to increase this for larger files for you.

For those of you with shell access to your WordPress installation, there’s another option.
My hosting provider refused to increase the PHP limit on their shared server, so I had to use this trick. Worked like charm.
