Someone else would be better suited then me to point you were to change it 
(whether Apache or PHP or the Bulletin Board software), but I would check 
time-out settings.

500kb files are pretty large, even for Cable, ISDN and DSL connections. I 
just uploaded a 700+kb file to one of our servers (in my case I used a Miva 
applet I wrote some years ago to upload the file).

I'm on business DSL (typically faster than residential DSL services) and 
that 700+kb file took awhile to upload. I didn't time it (I should have - 
duh). While it didn't take minutes, it wasn't "near instantaneous" either.

So rather than checking for a "size limit", it might be worth looking into 
a potential low time-out setting somewhere in your configuration or 

Hope that helps.
