Uploading Problem

I've just created new app content (movie Maestro v1.0). The content is not complete because I can't seem to upload the actual app itself.

I've created a SIT file of a toast image. The file size is about 400 MB in size.

I was able to "upload" the file but when I clicked the Save button I get an error 500 Internal Server error.

I've tried this 3 times with the same result.

Suggestions?

Hi Gary,

Well, I have encountered some problems me too with uploading. I think I have seen the same error as u, today or just yesterday. I have tried many times for a larger file & it is uploaded now. But, if the uploading operation is very too long, may be it can fail. So, perhaps u need to split your file in two parts before uploading it. I can help you to upload your file then in one piece, but, only today, as my uploading connection will close very soon.

An error 500 suggests a malfunction somewhere in a script, I will have to investigate this further.

What would happen if you just select the file instead and scroll down to hit save, and let it upload the file that way?

Thanks fogWraith for your futures interventions to help us. Personally, I encounter an error if the file is uploaded since a long time. May be there is a cache somewhere on the server that prevents the file(s) to stay in place ? If I swap the archives of the file list, there is an error too. I think if I select the file & save at once, the file will not upload no more...

Drupal has a habit of first accepting an upload, temporary storing it in one location, it is then processed and moved to another location once everything is "in order", saving and storing the page along with its uploads to be presented, which in a way is a rather long way to go for file uploads.

I've had more success in just browsing for the file and leaving at that in the file form, selecting "Save" at the bottom instead of clicking "Upload" first, if changes needs to be made, that can be done to the page afterwards.

Your suggestion to SAVE without uploading worked. Movie Maestro is now complete.

I have found a demo of this program. May I upload it to your page, Gary ?
