I am building a website for services that I provide. This website is hosted on hostgator.
My problem, is that my clients will have to upload large files to me, around 700mb-2gb files. Apparently the max_upload_size on hostgator is set to 64MB in the php settings and these settings cannot be changed unless I upgrade to a Virtual Private Server.
I'm using Word Press 3.3.1 and I have installed the plugin 'inline_uploader' (along with other ones I did not like) for the upload section on my site. However, I get an error at the end that says "The upload time limit of PHP Directive max_input_time is preventing the upload of big files." It then tells me to change that setting in the php.ini file, which I've done. That didn't seem to work, that's when I asked hostgator about it and they told me the above.
I need my clients to be able to:
Upload without logging in or signing up.
Upload files 700mb-2gb in size.
Upload using an easy plugin on a "File Transfers" page.
(The easier for them the better)
I'm considering using dropbox as a server to host these files for the file exchanging, but all the plugins I've tried for dropbox haven't seemed to work correctly.
Does anyone have any suggestions for my situation?
