paper upload

Postby domenico » Wed Apr 23, 2008 2:32 am


I'm not able to upload paper bigger than 10Mb (Unfortunately I can't change the php server config). So I think a possible workaround is:
1. start submission procedure via author account
2. after the upload fails (and OCS report "Awaiting Upload") upload the file via FTP
3. change the path to the ftp-uploaded file

So, my problem is; it is possible to change the file path after upload fails?

Hi Domenico,

I'd suggest uploading a temporary file of the same type (i.e. if you're using OpenDocument files, then upload a blank ODT), then using FTP to replace that with the full-sized file. Unfortunately there's not much you can do if PHP's limits are set too low, but depending on your server configuration, this work-around should be OK. (You may have to wrangle with file permissions.)
