Hi guys,

I have a complex one I can't work out, Im trying to upload files in nginx 
with a php script, this files are normally in the realm or 40-100mb, Ive 
changed the relevent settings in php to allow these files I have also 
checked phpinfo to make sure they are being used (I used the same ones on an 
apache server), in nginx I was orignally getting 413 messages so I have 
"client_max_body_size            150m;"

Now here is my problem, when i try to upload a file that is larger then 8mb 
in size, nginx is saying that the page is a normal 200 however it is not 
passing the POST information or the FILE information to php they are just 
blank, and of course it isn't uploading the file, anything under 8mb works 

Any suggestions?

 the script is a simple
based script.
