Chunked file uploads for the Panel#256

?

As it happens, many of our customers are using Kirby 3 on their webspaces with some limitations to PHP uploads. Some of them can’t change max post filesize on their PHP.ini due to restrictions. Others are using CDN like proxies like Cloudflare which only accepts uploads with up to 100 MB on their small plans.

A simple and reliable solution would be to enable chunked uploads with 5 or 20 MB per chunk to be able to upload large files (100 MB+).

This would help us and our customers to bypass this limits on almost every server and they don’t have to upload large files via FTP or even switch to a whole server (where these can edit these limits).

Other self hosted services like “Nextcloud” also do it like this and this works pretty well!

What files are they uploading that are so big? Genuinely curious.

Very big PDF presentations or PDF catalogues. Sometimes they also have press kits as a ZIP file with hundreds or Hi-Res images inside (TIFF, PSD files…).

That makes sense! A workaround until we get to this feature could be to actually set up something like Nextcloud to upload the files to. The upload directory of that Nextcloud instance would be inside Kirby’s content directory, so once the files are there, they can be used in Kirby like normal.

We had this issue too, especially with customers using Cloudflare. Our current solution was / is a custom made plugin with a custom uploader for big files with chunking enabled.

But it would be really nice if that were a core feature in Kirby and enabled by default.

Doing website for an accountant - he wants to allow their clients to upload (very) large data files (50Mb+) to his site. Very difficult to do with Kirby. :(
