Upload larger file using Core API

Sumit V. New member | Level 1
New member | Level 1

My shop is working with PHP-MVC. i have used dropbox API to upload files from my computer. But now due to long files user have to wait until
file uploading is completed now how can i do this uploading in background so user do not have to wait to completed file uploading and user can navigate easily with other area or shop. Like in background upload is still going on even user is on another page. Does CORE API helpful?

How can i make solution for this problem

The Dropbox API offers two different ways to upload files. The simplest is using the /files_put endpoint:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/core/docs#files_put

For files larger than 150 MB though, you should use the chunked uploading endpoints:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/core/docs#commit-chunked-upload

In either case, you can process the upload in the background, but exactly how you do that will depend on your setup and isn't exactly related to the Dropbox API. E.g., you may want to kick off a background process/thread to do the upload.
