Upload progress bar in php?
I've created a php page with a form that users can upload files,
This works fine.
Can I use php to open up another window to show the progress of the upload?
The majority of the files to be uploaded are over 20mb so it would be nice to show the user how long they have left to wait.
Currently this is impossible to do with PHP alone. However, I have seen many solutions to the problem. http://pdoru.from.ro/ offers a patch for PHP itself that makes this possible. I have also heard of using Perl to upload, and PHP to get the progress. And lastly, I have seen a site that used a java applet to pull this off.
