Subject: RE: Having trouble uploading to the wiki


Ok, since you asked twice and I like you, I uploaded the large file again.

The file was (38,447,718 bytes) and it took.  

The first count to 100% took 4 minutes, 29 seconds.
adding the 2nd count to 100% gives a total time of: 7 minutes, 45 seconds

I get the "failed" returned again.

So, maybe increasing the time out will help.   Also, these files are getting
bigger and bigger and maybe its time to increase the file size limit.

BTW, I just measured my upload speed and it is over 10Mbps (fiber to my
house), using one of those bandwidth measuring sites.

Thank you for making and sharing those builds!

(I think the actual filenames you uploaded are all-lowercase, though.)

I hope so too.  I think RAR is much more common than ZIPX that you almost
used.  (I also think it would have been better for you to exclude the
non-essential *.chr files - not all of them, but just the extra ones, same
ones that I exclude from the main 1.8.0 tarball - and use classic ZIP, then.
But this does not matter now.  Maybe next time.)

I disagree.  It's a good thing to keep uploads sane.  Also, maybe you were
bumping into a timeout rather than into a size limit.  You never replied to
my question on just how slow the uploads were for you.
I think the timeout is at 5 minutes now.  Is it possible you were hitting 5
minutes with these?  (Yes, that would be surprisingly slow.)

I notice you've since corrected this.

While you're at it, maybe you can correct some other broken file links on
that wiki page?  These appear in red right now:

john-1.7.7-jumbo-6-rs904c (2.6 MB)
john-1.7.8-3jumbo5.el6.x86_64.rpm (64-bit) john-1.7.7-jumbo-6-rs904c
(32-bit) (2.5 MB) john-1.7.7-jumbo-6-rs904c (64-bit) (2.6 MB)

I guess the DokuWiki update (documented in here before) might have broken
them, requiring a stricter wiki markup syntax or something.

For others reading this, we're talking about:

Thanks again,
