    ftp and php


    if wanna set up a script that will allow advertisers to upload ads to our file server. Yet i know that most browsers will timeout if u try to upload something over 8MB. I have heard there is some sort of ftp method. can some one help me out on this issue.

    thanks,
    mike

    Sure you can use FTP with PHP, but its not going to help you much

    The problem is that you'll still be uploading the file using the HTTP protocol from the clients machine to yours. PHP has no way of getting it before its been upped to the webserver
