You may have seen this missing in your status report. I have finally gotten around to installing this. there are a few things that I had to do.
this is a great link. read it. there is a lot of confusion because drupal tells you you need it but doesn’t really tell you how to enable it. that’s because it is really a function of the os. but the link will tell you what to do.
this is another good link on PECL.
do this to install and configure the upload progress module

Add the line “extension=uploadprogress.so” to php.ini
$ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
