[Solved]: zip download file limit
« on: November 27, 2008, 05:04:09 am »

I am unable to download zip files combined size of more that 2MB from My Favorite. The page goes blank if the zipped file size is larger than 2 MB. How can I download all the collected images in My Favorite irrespective of size. Help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Probably not at all. Zipping is a resource-intensive process. You're running into server-sided limitations that makes the zip&download script time out. You (as admin) should use your FTP app to download your files from the webserver to your client and then zip on your client. Regular users can't do that of course.

Having said the zip download is a server side  process and it’s limitation, I am wondering if there  any plug-in (or a solution) where ftp download is possible. We can install a ftp server and ftp users can be the Coppermine users and all files from my favorite can be downloaded to the users machine. As anybody tried this and is there a how to for this method?

How is a FTP server suppossed to be aware of coppermine's users? Is the server actually yours to administer? If yes, specify the operating system and the FTP server that you're going to use - maybe there is a pre-made solution that allows a script to look up an existing database. Warning: only for very experienced server admins!
