I currently have an ASP.NET MVC project that has file uploading and it works great if the user has a good enough connection and their file is of a reasonable size.
The problem I'm running into is that sometimes a user might have a 56k connection (how they can live with it in this day and age, I don't know) or are uploading a larger file or some combination of the two.
I'd like to keep a small timeout for normal pages (90 seconds or so), but allow for a larger timeout for actions where a user is uploading. This is just one action, so I don't mind putting code inside just that singular action rather than a generic solution.
Ultimately, a solution that would automatically increase the timeout if Request.Files.Count > 0 would be the best.
