wildweaselmi Posted January 8, 2010 Share Posted January 8, 2010 Some of the files I store in Downloads II for later download are pretty large (over 300MB) and if you try and add this size file using the front end, it normally fails or times out. So the solution to this speed bump is to Upload file to your server using FTP log in using user account and password cd /public_html/forums/downloads lcd /Users/wildweaselmi/Source_Files put largeassfile.dmg This will copy from your local drive to your downloads directory Next, you want to go into the Admin Console in vBulletin Click on DownloadsII Click on Import (will only show files that you have the extensions added) Fill in the File Details for the ones you want to import and place a checkmark in the far right column to import file. Click the Import Button and you are done. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
