how to upload files > 1mb into mysql from php
hello every one

i am new to this group.

can any one help me out how to uplad files greater than 1 mb into mysql database from a php page. i have sucessfully written a programme from which i am able to upload files less than 1 mb into mysql database.

i have cahnged php.ini as follows:

The parameters are:
max_execution_time = 3000
memory_limit = 16M
post_max_size = 80M

; File Uploads ;
file_uploads = On
upload_tmp_dir = /tmp
upload_max_filesize = 80M

can any one hlp me in this case.

thank you.

Your problem might not be uploading the file, it might be that the table/column you're inserting the data into has a size restriction on it. Double check the column data type and make sure it's able to hold large amounts of data.

It also be that you're timing out when uploading larger files. Try changing your max_execution_time to something larger, say 30000, just for testing purposes.

FWIW, I think the best approach is to upload files to the filesystem and insert the path to the file in the database, not the contents of the file itself.

Take care,

hello nikolai

thank you for ur reply.

i use mysql and i use long blob as the datatype to the column in which i have to upload the files. and in mysql lonblob datatype the maximum storage can be 2^32 bytes. which is almost 80 mb

Okay, someone agrees with me about NOT inserting files into a database! Read this other current thread:

Take care,
