Upload progress not supported in Drupal using FastCGI

Sensitive: no


Hi All,

I just installed D7 for the first time on our servers (daza). One of the reported problems Drupal reported is the lack of upload progress using FastCGI. Here's the full status message:

Upload progress	 == Not enabled

Your server is not capable of displaying file upload progress. File upload progress requires PHP be run with mod_php and not as FastCGI.

I think this might be a problem for a number of users, especially those who do large uploads.

this drupal issue points to the problem being in PECL. We should push on these upstream bugs if we want to see it resolved.

Meh. Subscribing.

Apparently Drupal can't be made to work around this.

Looks like upload progress is not going to start working for FastCGI.[]=uploadprogress

Note that my understanding is this is cosmetic– Drupal still gives a moving blue bar to give the impression of progress, it just can't tell you what the progress actually is.

[crosspost, but somehow dkg and i found different links that say the same thing... my read is that getting those upstream bugs resolved looks unlikely in the short term, but it's probably something we can live without.]

This isn't a D7 specific problem; it's true for all of our D6 sites, too. That reported problem along with the GD image issues always makes me sad when I look at the status pages of Drupal sites hosted on MFPL.

hmm, being able to show file upload would be a nice thing, no? Is there some way we can try to approach this? If anyone has a concrete suggestion that lets us still run shared hosting under different users with php, please reopen it and explain the way forward.

We can have a simple version of upload progress supporting one file upload at a time by enabling apc.rfc1867 in /etc/php5/conf.d/apc.ini or leave it to the individual hosting order's ini file.

  • Resolution wontfix deleted

that sounds worthy of investigation.
