[FTP2.03] I'm trying to upload a large file onto my webspace, and the file manager inside the Control Panel won't let me. Why?

This is due to the nature of the web based FTP used, and your browser/ISP connection timing out before upload completes. To avoid this issue, if you need to upload large files to your website, then we'd recommend you use an FTP client to do so, such as

FileZilla
FTP Surfer
Smart FTP
