I have a problem with Moodle hanging prior to uploading files.
For example if uploading a small image there is a delay of as much as a minute while the file is uploaded.
Uploading files of a larger size, say 16 meg takes a similar amount of time (on 100Mbs LAN).
This leads me to conclude the issue is with moodle itself rather than the network or server, i.e. there is a delay in handling the data.
I am using version 1.8.1 and am wondering if anyone else has observed this or has any suggestions on how I may improve the situation?
