View Full Version : Uploading Large Pdf File

05-15-2011, 05:31 PM
I have previously uploaded pdf files to web sites and linked to them successfully.

I have tried several times to upload a 2.9meg pdf file and failed. Dreamweaver proceeeds with the upload to the very end and then says connecting to server and then sends a report. I renamed the file and removed gaps - still no joy. Any one any ideas?

My os is 7, my Dreamweaver is version CS5

What's the report say?

At one time I would have suspected that you've exceeded the your disk space limit for your hosting account. That's rare now days but you might check it out.

Thanks for your reply, I checked there is no disk space limit. Peculiar that it goes to the end of the upload before signalling "connecting to server".

It could be dropping the connection and then trying to reconnect. Why it would do that at the end of the upload is hard to imagine. Are you certain your site definition is correct and that the host has given you proper permissions on the server? If so, I'd say a call to support is your next step.

I decided to split the file into smaller chunks
