    Recently we discovered a problem: user uploaded a really large (3Gb) file to the server. It can be downloaded through FTP correctly but not through HTTP! When downloading through HTTP (any web browser) you just get 0 bytes file and Download finished message.

    Where should we start fixing this?

    If I had to guess I would say it is the file size limit that is set with apache. I know I have have httpd-2.0.52-28 and I can't download files larger than 2gig from it via httpd. I have not yet upgraded to 2.2, because I wasn't sure if Plesk would have issues with it.

    Overview of new features in Apache 2.2:
    httpd is now built with support for files larger than 2GB on modern 32-bit Unix systems. Support for handling >2GB request bodies has also been added.
