Is this possiable?

Recommended Posts

Ok let me start by telling you what im trying to do.
here is what i want php to do.
1. SOmeone goes to mysite.com/dl.php
2. The php file isnt a page it uses some like

// Headers for an download:
header('Content-Type: application/octet-stream');
header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="example.zip"');
header('Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary');
// load the file to send:

to generate a zxip file download.

Thats a code i foubnd online.

But what i want to do is when someone visits that dl.php page the php not only starts the dl but generates the file
so like zip.php wouldnt be on the server. Id have files on the server and when that php file is called itll generate a zip file for that download and then be gone.

If i explained that horibily say so.
If its not possiable please ay so.
If it is can you please help?
