Hi all,
I am at a loss here. I am trying to upload files around 200mb directly to amazon s3 and they fail when they are large. Smaller files work fine.
I get no error messages and the progress reaches 100%. But it doesn't do anything after reaching 100% and I check my s3 bucket and the file is not there.
Any ideas?

Well, keep in mind, you're not uploading directly to the S3 server. You're uploading to your web server and that's being transferred to S3 using the API on the backend. So your web server will have to be configured to accept uploads of the size you're uploading.

upload_max_filesize 500M
max_post_size 500M
max_execution_time 300

Wait, you mean to tell me I am not going directly to s3! Aagggh. I have wasted so much time on this! LOL
I thought we were uploading directly to s3 so I have been way off.
