    I uploaded a file that is 3.65 GB in size, For some odd reason the server is not allowing it to be downloaded through http, I can get it through FTP, but not through a URL, What could be causing this?

    Thanks

    Possibly some limit in Apache or in the OS/kernel regarding files greater than 2GB in size.

    Assuming that this 3.65GB file is archived (zipped or similar), could you not create a two- or three-part archive, resulting in a small collection of files that are each significantly smaller?

    You might also need to consider checking if your kernel was compiled with large file support.

    I'm not sure how to do this, but I'm sure Google will tell you!
