  • 1 Gig Attachment

    is it possible to attach a 1 Gig File with vbulletin, assuming you have enough diskspace ?

    That would be extremely difficult and would require changing a number of different settings on the server to allow this. I doubt any host would allow this.

    Also if this is for an attachment that goes into the database, then you should be aware that MySQL databases are not expected to be storage systems for massive files like this.

      Odds are PHP would timeout even if you increased it to a ridiculous value, which in turn is not safe at all.

        Earlier I asked about if you can upload attachment via http source and if VB can accept 1 Gig attachment. I found a way to get around it by uploading a small file with the same filename and type to the post, find that generated attachment id, go look it up in PHPmyadmin modify the actual filesize then copy the file over to replace the initial small attachment 1234.attach
