  1. That is the name of my column (contractupload) in my database where i store the path of the file
  2. I’m trying to download a file from my database which i have uploaded using path and copy the file to a folder. When i download the file and try to open it it says “Failed to load PDF document”. I don’t know what i’m doing wrong. Can someone help me please? Thanks guys. This is my upload file code: $contract_file = basename($_FILES['contractupload']['name']); $contract_path = "files/contracts/$contract_file"; $contract_file = mysqli_real_escape_string($conn, $contract_file); if (copy($_FILES['contractupload']['tmp_name'], $contract_path)){ $sql = "INSERT INTO addemployees (contractupload) VALUES ('$contract_file')"; And this is my download code: <?php // Include config file require_once "config.php"; if(isset($_GET['id'])) { // if id is set then get the file with the id from database $id = $_GET['id']; $query = "SELECT contractupload FROM addemployees WHERE id = $id"; $result = mysqli_query($mysqli, $query) or die('Error, query failed'); list($contractupload) = mysqli_fetch_array($result); header("Content-Type: application/octet-stream"); header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=" . Urlencode($contractupload)); header("Content-Type: application/force-download"); header("Content-Type: application/octet-stream"); header("Content-Type: application/download"); header("Content-Description: File Transfer"); echo $contractupload; exit; } ?> Download File From MySQL <?php $query = "SELECT id, contractupload FROM addemployees"; $result = mysqli_query($query) or die('Error, query failed'); if(mysqli_num_rows($result) == 0) { echo "Database is empty"; } else { while(list($id, $contractupload) = mysqli_fetch_array($result)) { ?> <?php } } ?> I’m listing it to my table: <?php $conn = mysqli_connect("localhost", "root", "", "employees"); if (!$conn) { die("Connection failed: " . mysqli_connect_error()); } $sql = "SELECT * from addemployees"; $result = $conn-> query($sql); if ($result-> num_rows > 0) { while ($row = $result-> fetch_assoc()) { echo "<tr> <td>".$row['id']."</td> <td>".$row['fname']."</td> <td>".$row['lname']."</td> <td>".$row['dob']."</td> <td>".$row['embg']."</td> <td>".$row['workposition']."</td> <td>".$row['address']."</td> <td><a href='download2.php?id=". $row['id'] ."' title='Download File'><span style='font-size: 19px; color: #3277b6; margin-right: 15px;'><i class='far fa-eye'></i></span></a></td> <td> <a href='read.php?id=". $row['id'] ."' title='View'><span style='font-size: 19px; color: #3277b6; margin-right: 15px;'><i class='far fa-eye'></i></span></a> <a href='update.php?id=". $row['id'] ."' title='Edit'><span style='font-size: 19px; color: #5cb85c; margin-right: 15px;'><i class='fas fa-pencil-alt'></i></span></a> <a href='delete.php?id=". $row['id'] ."' title='Delete'><span style='font-size: 19px; color: red;'><i class='fas fa-trash-alt'></i></span></a> </td> </tr>"; } echo "</table>"; } else { echo "0 results"; } $conn-> close(); ?>
