View Full Version : cgi parms getting lost on large file upload

11-27-2009, 10:51 AM
hello all -

this is my first post in the perl/cgi forum....

i have been using the html <input type="file" /> for uploading files to the server for a long time now without any problems.

but this new problem has me stumped. once the uploaded file goes over 100 megs, all the parameters are getting lost! i can see the file out there in my /var/tmp directory.

YES i have already tried to increase the apache Timeout setting and verified the new setting.

i can do <100 meg file without any issue but as soon as i go to 110 megs all my CGI parameters are getting lost.

any other settings i might want to play with?

thanks in advance,

oops - it may have been $CGI::POST_MAX setting - will know in 20 minutes or so.....
