Create a download file link


Recommended Posts



Just looking how to create a link to download a file located on the server, it will be files like .doc etc.


Cant seem to find anything on the net so i think i need php but may be html.


Can anyone point me in the right direction?




p.s. it will be used for more than one file so im looking for a small ish amount of code.

you can use <a > tag but if you are trying to do with .txt file then it's open in browser only not give a popup to download. Please visit below link and code to implement download file.





<?php// We'll be outputting a PDFheader('Content-type: application/pdf');// It will be called downloaded.pdfheader('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="downloaded.pdf"');// The PDF source is in original.pdfreadfile('original.pdf');?>
