in thread large file uploads - timeout

Yeah, I am using Safari as my browser. I just tried it with IE (Mac 5.2) and it worked with no problem. It took a while to execute, but never crashed and the file is uploaded on my server. Is there anything I can do? I'd like the script to work with the majority of browsers, but if it's a local timeout setting that is causing the problem, I'm not sure if there is a solution.

    Keep in mind that Safari is still in beta. Report the bug to Apple, and wait for the final release. The solution is theirs to find.

    It's commendable that you are trying to make your script work with all browsers, but such a bug is just out of you control.

    Yes, you can detect the broken browser, and inform the user to get a better one (see HTTP::BrowserDetect).
    I'd like the script to work with the majority of browsers...
    It already does. The majority of browsers correctly implement the HTTP/CGI protocols, and as such, work. Only these can be called browsers. The others, like Safari, are broken-browsers, so they have no hope of working.
