Error 101 upload (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET) when Uploading large files on Drupal

Wow, now this was one of those problems that really makes you want to put your head through a wall.

Soo, I was uploading a large file to my CMS through drupal and at about 35%(of a 40MB file) I would get booted to an error page with the following message.  I looked high and low and while I found a solution that told me to go into mysql and set the wait_timeout like this: “set wait_timeout = 28800” (for some reason my host had it set to 45) it was still occurring.

The other thing was to put this: mysqli.reconnect = On in my php.ini file which didn’t work but then I tried this isntead: mysql.reconnect = On and I’m not 100% sure if that was what did it but the last thing I did was I bypassed my router and plugged the cable modem into the laptop directly and guess what?  Bloody file went through..

2 hours later I get my life back

Funny enough now I’v
