  • Upload files without timing out

    I have a few questions and am fairly new to VB.
    I have set up my vbulletin and would like to know how to let a large file be uploaded.
    I have let in Vbulletin options any size by setting it to 0.
    I have also tried making the max twice the size of the file to be uploaded.
    I have also have give permission for the particlar file extension.
    Its a 3 meg word doc. So in valid extensions I have enabled .doc
    I have also tried zipping it as well.
    I get a timeout error come up while im uploading.
    The error is as follows

    Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in c:\InetPub\Domain Customers\\forum\newthread.php on line 2

    Would i be better sending it to a directory and making a link?
    Does it put the file inside the database or does it send it to a directory then point a URL to it.
    Im running version 2.3.2.
    Thanking you in advance.
