No Mime Type

Recommended Posts

I think No Mime Type is the correct subject title for this

Basically, I have made a PM system, which allows attatchments

The way it works, if a message has an attatchment the link to the file will be included.

However, on clicking the direct link to the file I dont want it to load up in its default application

For example, if its an MP3 I dont want it to load in windows media player

How can I get it so that no matter what file type it is, it will always ask you to SAVE AS

Look at the [url=http://php.net/header]header[/url] function for examples.

Ive got this code and it is working, but their is one problem

Sometimes, and i think this is random, when clicking save it only saves like 170k of the file

Running it again to try and download the same file and it downloads it in full

Just wondering why this is happening?

$file = $_GET['file'];
if (strstr($file, "../")) {die("Unlucky Punk");}
$filesize = filesize($file);
    header("Content-length: ".$filesize);
    header("Pragma: public");
    header("Expires: 0"); // set expiration time
    header("Cache-Control: must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0");
    header("Content-Type: application/force-download");
    header("Content-Type: application/octet-stream");
    header("Content-Type: application/download");
    header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=Jaydiocity_$file");
    header("Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary");
