Big File Uploads on VPS - anybody got it to run? PHP

Hey there,

the support didn`t want to help me with a custom setup…:wink:

I need to get file uploads up to 500mb to run on my DH Vps system. Things i did till now:

Edit php.ini settings:
max_execution_time = 1000
max_file_uploads = 20
max_input_time = 1000
memory_limit = 256M
post_max_size = 1000M
upload_max_filesize = 1000M

Change tmp directory to another directory (tmp had a 128mb restriction)

I keep getting 500 Internal Server Errors with files above 50-70Mb… Error logs don`t show anything interesting…

What can i do about this?

Oh I agree. Using PHP for that is like using a hammer to drive in a screw. You can but …
