Browser "Wait for answer" when downloading large files

Hello,

I’m running Nextcloud 16.0.5 on Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS (64 Bit), Apache/2.4.41 and PHP 7.3.10-1 as a VM in Vsphere.

Works great so far, except when downloading a large file (>500mb) only a “Wait for answer from …” in the browser tab comes after hit the “download” button.

Anyone had a similar problem?

I think it’s caused by PHP but i don’t know in which php.ini I have to look …

drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Jul 25 06:04 7.0/

drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 Jul 25 06:04 7.3/

drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Oct 8 06:53 fpm/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Sep 9 05:58 mods-available/

I think it’s the php.ini in apache2 … :
