Hi
I am trying to upload 30mb files with attachment-fu, these seem to
just hang. (works file for small image files)
I am using mongrel cluster and nginx...

Does anyone have any advice?

Thanks

Richard

You might check to see if your mongrels are giving up as the process
is taking too long to process. It sounds like a time-out issue more
than an issue with attachment_fu. Check your mongrel and nginx logs
for details.

Hi Richard,

Nginx sets proxy_read_timeout to 60 seconds by default. So you may need
to add a line like this to your nginx.conf file:

proxy_read_timeout 300;

cheers,
Vince

Hello,

Also it is possible that you need to rise rise
client_max_body_size in the nginx.conf

Best regards,

Thanks for your help,

It was the client_max_body_size, I changed this in the nginx.conf then
it worked! I had set proxy_read_timeout to 0 also,

so thanks for your input, I wasn't sure if the problem was mongrel,
nginx or rails so I am glad it was solved relatively simply.

Best Regards

Richard
