Why can't I upload 2GB+ file in the Web Client?

Postby FTP » Thu Aug 05, 2010 4:54 pm

Uploaded file's size is strongly limited by the web browser. Some old web browser(include flash) can just handle signed numbers as large as 2GB (-2147483648 to 2147483648). So when you want to upload a 2GB+ file, the file size in the HTTP head will become a negative number, then the uploading will be failed.

P.S. Most popular web browser has no such issue now, like Google Chrome, Firefox...
