Magento Freezes/Times Out on Large Product Import - Help?

Hi

I have been able to load files with 20,000 to 50,000 products in January 2009. However, 2 weeks later, I am trying to upload more products. I cut the file to 20,000 products, but it still won’t import. I’m using the same php.ini settings, the same import profile, the same attribute set, etc.

When I start the import, it only gets this far:
* Starting profile execution, please wait…
* Warning: Please don’t close window during importing/exporting data

Then when I come back, hours later, nothing has happened.

I have attached a screenshot: of the Magento import pop-up.

Same here,

It seems to work for files around 4K rows but when it goes larger it stops at the same stage as you.

Log file don’t show anything. I’ve checked the post_max_size, 64Mb and my file is around 5Mb so it shouldn’t be that. Plus if I check the tmp folder in root/varI see my file which means it has been uploaded.
