13.2. FormPost

You can use the FormPost feature to give your website audience a way to upload objects to your Cloud Files account through a web form. FormPost works by translating a browser form request into an object PUT operation in Cloud Files (see Section 5.3.2, “Create or update object”). After you enable FormPost on your account, you need only to create the form in your website by using the guidelines in this section.

As with all objects in Cloud Files, the object file size limit is 5 GB. If your users try to upload an object larger than 5 GB, they will get a file size error.
