Well as the title said wonder if my server can support 5 connection?
since right now using download manager it doesnt support resuming and only allow 1 connection.

I dont have any server firewall enabled at the moment and i have apache 2.2.9.
The downloads are served through http

How is the file being downloaded? Is it a direct link, or through a script?

well through a script, to be more exact vb mods downloadsII. I suppose i should contact the author for support?

But without the script i still get one connection only. I wish to raise it to 4-5 connection when they use download manager. Anyway to do this with an apache installed?

If you can still only "open" one connection when directly downloading a file - I would suggest contacting your SysAdmin/Host as it is most likely a configuration issue.

Actually the sysadmin says something very different. They said that since i have apache it wont support resuming and only allow one connection. Any help?

i got centos 5.2 64bit


Hi,

I believe as you are using apache to download, it does not support multiple
connections and resume downloads. Usually this is on special ftp servers.

That is wrong - Apache will support download resuming/part splitting "out-of-the-box", as it is simply a header request for specific parts of the file. Unless you have disabled accepting these headers yourself, they will be "enabled".

It should be already enabled by default - I don't know your specific server configuration. As I've said before, contact your SysAdmin/Host.

Well they said i would need to give them instruction how to allow 4 connnection since they believe this is not something it is possible because i use apache.

Please help. if you want me to give any specific configuration i will try to do so.

You were implying that it multiple connections worked, now you're saying it doesn't? See post #8....

That post implies that you have multiple connections working and that you want to then limit it to four connections only.

well in that case u ormyself misinterpet

I assumed that your reply stated that multiple connection is possible therefore i thought since it was possible i wanted to raise to 4 connection but didnt knew how and i asked you for help

Out-of-the-box, Apache will allow as many connections as possible. I said multiple connections are enabled by default - if it didn't work for you, why didn't you just say so?

My comments in post #8 still stand though.

and as my earlier post said, they have no clue. They strongly believe that multiple connection is not possible as long as i have apache installed.

i thought you would understand that message that i could never get multiple connection possible consider that my sysadmin and the host said that with apache multiple connection is not possible. maybe ididnt made my msg clear enough?

But if you think it is possible what server configuration do i have to give you in order to raise the connection limit?

There is no connection limit - unless you have modified Apache. Can this be any clearer?

maidos
02 Aug 2008, 07:43
Clear enough. Though i havent modified the apache but im uncertain about what sysadmin did because they said they only optimized the server. They keep saying that apache can only give one connection because of the apache. Any help?

I don't know what they did - I do know, however, that Apache can give more than one connection per IP, as been stated several times.

Wow, this thread is one for the books. Provide the following info:

1) A link to a file
2) Who is your host?
3) Is this a shared, dedicated, vps, etc?
4) Is there a cp installed (IE CPanel)

Give that info and we can move ahead...
