Thread: Uploads go to 100% but no download link

  1. #1

    Default Uploads go to 100% but no download link

    From time to time I get complaints, and I have also seen it once. Where a download goes to 100%, but no download link gets generated.

    That's not the right attitude.

    I have had someone who's 300Mb upload failed twice due to this reason. I understand there might be other more critical bugs, but none the less, yab has to look at it.

    I have this problem to! On my site it happens pretty often..
    And it really is random.. sometimes its a 5KB file that fails, next time its a 50MB or 500MB file...

    There are some reasons that cause the download link not showing:
    1. The upload.cgi is timed out to process whole request. For this, try to raise your httpd timeout settings.

    2. The file is uploaded, but the info is not inserted into database. In some cases, mysql server is too busy to cause mysql query fail.

    Please check the error logs of your server if there is something usefull to track the issue.

    Timeout cannot be a reason, why should it timeout if upload is going on ?

    Secondly increasing timeout to anything more than 300 is just making server go mad..which shouldnt be done, coz it would keep one connection ON till it timeouts or by chance even if a user is not using that active apache request.

    A keep alive option should be enough to give you the link ! ..
    the problem which I see is 2nd one by yab

    Timeout should be considered also, especially when users upload files via unstable internet connections. Big file upload requires lots of time for servers to accept the data and much time for Perl to extract the file from raw http data stream.

    so why doesn't rapidshare or others face this problem ? Do they keep high timeout settings ? (I Doubt..No way)

    This thing is not even due to server load..I may host this script on brand new core2duo (nothing else innit) and this thing can happen by any chance....

    Reasons are hard to know from my side, maybe stephen know's best

    as soon a site get a bit busy - or who knows what - boom ! downloads links do not show to uploaders !
