  1. I want to backup mp3 files from a server folder to a local folder can this be done in php which is server side. I tried many scripts claiming to do this but all result in 'failed to open stream: No such file or directory' because the code is looking for the destination on the server, not the local directory. Here is an example that says it can be done. ini_set('display_errors',1); error_reporting(E_ALL); $source = "https://domain.com/2024-2021/path_to_file/test.mp3"; echo "src is ", $source; $destination = "C:/backup/2024-2021/Cpath_to_file/"; file_put_contents($destination, file_get_contents($source)); echo "OK"; This one also claims to 'force' the download $file = '/path/to/files/photo.jpg'; if (is_file($file)) { sendHeaders($file, 'image/jpeg', 'My picture.jpg'); $chunkSize = 1024 * 1024; $handle = fopen($file, 'rb'); while (!feof($handle)) { $buffer = fread($handle, $chunkSize); echo $buffer; ob_flush(); flush(); } fclose($handle); exit; } But has the same problem, in that it fails when opening the local folder to write the file, is there a way to do this?
  2. I have a download section in my index.php that I'd like to add a download counter to but have no idea how to accomplish this. The existing code works perfectly but I'd like to know how many times the file is downloaded. Would prefer not to use a database. <!-- DOWNLOAD --> <div id="download" class="stylized"> <div "myform"> <div class="container"> <div class="row"> <div class="download"> <br /><br> <h1><center>FoxClone Download Page</center></h1> <?php $files = glob('download/*.iso'); $file = $files[count($files) -1]; $info = pathinfo($file); $filename = basename($file); $filename = ltrim($filename,'/'); $md5file = md5_file($file); ?> <div class="container"> <div class="divL"> <h3>Get the "<?php echo "{$filename}";?>" file (approx. 600MB)</h3> <center> <a href="<?php echo "/{$file}";?>"><img src="images/button_get-the-app.png" alt=""></a> </center><br /> <h3 style="margin-bottom: 0.5rem;">The MD5sum for "<?php echo "{$filename}";?>" is "<?php echo "{$md5file}";?> Thanks in advance, Larry
  3. Securing my upload folder “upl” The upl folder is used to store anything that is uploaded by the user for their needs that is not a part of the back end, as such all content in this folder is subject to being locked down and and supplied after checking credentials. The upl folder has an .htaccess file that locks down all remote access. order deny,allow deny from all When something is needed from this directory we jump that wall with the help of apache after credentials are verified. I think this is straight forward so far. For images something like; <img src=”downloader.php?app=1&id=20&type=thumb”> For files something like; <a href=”downloader.php?app=1&id=20&type=file&fileid=1212”> After we check creds, we use similar to below to get data from that locked down folder. $size = filesize($file); header ( 'Content-Description: File Transfer' ); header("Content-Type: application/force-download"); header ( 'Content-Type: application/octet-stream' ); header ( "Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=\"".basename($file)."\""); header ( 'Expires: 0' ); header ( 'Cache-Control: must-revalidate' ); header ( 'Pragma: public' ); header ( 'Content-Length: ' . filesize ( $file ) ); ob_clean(); flush(); readfile ( $file ); exit(); seems to work pretty swimmingly for the most part. My problem is (or at lease a mild nuisance) is that it seems that these images loaded in this manner are not subject to the cache system of a browser? It looks like they reload every time a page is visited. Is there a way around this?
  4. I've tried three different attempts to force php to download. None of them are working correctly. Can anybody help me get this working? The text/garbage that displays on the screen looks like it was a zip opened in a text editor. I have also tried this http://stackoverflow...rbage-on-screen with no luck either First: Returns a page full of garbage $fid = $_GET['file']; $results = mysql_query("SELECT filename FROM files WHERE id=$fid"); if (mysql_numrows($results) == 0){ echo "<b>File not found</b>"; return; } $file = mysql_result($results,0,"filename"); $fileurl = 'http://url.com/files/'.$file; // Set headers header("Cache-Control: public"); header("Content-Description: File Transfer"); header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=$fileurl"); header("Content-Type: application/zip"); header("Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary"); // Read the file from disk readfile($fileurl); exit(); Second: Returns same garbage (.zip file) $fid = $_GET['file']; $results = mysql_query("SELECT filename FROM files WHERE id=$fid"); if (mysql_numrows($results) == 0){ echo "<b>File not found</b>"; return; } $file = mysql_result($results,0,"filename"); $fileurl = 'http://url.com/files/'.$file; header('Content-Description: File Transfer'); header('Content-Type: application/zip'); header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="'.basename($fileurl).'"'); //<<< Note the " " surrounding the file name header('Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary'); header('Connection: Keep-Alive'); header('Expires: 0'); header('Cache-Control: must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0'); header('Pragma: public'); header('Content-Length: ' . filesize($fileurl)); readfile($fileurl); Third: Returns same garbage, but also alters page layout $fid = $_GET["file"]; $results = mysql_query("SELECT filename FROM files WHERE id=$fid"); if (mysql_numrows($results) == 0){ echo '<b>File not found</b>'; return; } $file = mysql_result($results,0,'filename'); $fileurl = "http://url.com/files/".$file; // Inform browser that this is a force-download header('Content-Description: File Transfer'); header('Content-Type: application/octet-stream'); // Inform browser that data can be binary in addition to text header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename='.basename($fileurl)); header('Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary'); // Inform browser that this page expires immediately so that an update to the file will still work. header('Expires: 0'); header('Cache-Control: must-revalidate'); header('Pragma: public'); header('Content-Length: ' . filesize($fileurl)); // Push actual file. ob_clean(); flush(); readfile($fileurl); exit(); Any help, insight, direction, or links would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. On a side note there are .zip, .rar, and .txt files. Do i just add content type lines?
