  • I attempted uploading files larger than 10M using a file field when logged out of a test site. I have extremely slow upload speeds from my current location and it too over 1 hour to upload a 20M file. I wouldn’t want to try to upload anything bigger from here, but the file uploaded correctly and PHP did not time out. To be honest I can’t say why you’re seeing a problem, but I would definitely be looking at finding a different way to upload files if my client was insisting that they needed to allow 50M file uploads on the front end of the site, for example, instructions on how to compress files and only excepting .zip files would be a place to start. Either that or building a custom field type that uploaded using some other method than http, as far as I know such a field does not yet exist.
