File download

Recommended Posts

im trying to think up a way where the user can download a file, without knowing the download link, (so that i can make a que system ect...). Ive tryed to use include("file.exe"); as a test.. didnt think it would work. but it has the same idea, grabbing a file without the user knowning where it is located.

Any code examples?

The forums are acting funny today, so I'll do what I can:

[code]$ name = "path/to/f ile.txt";

$ type = m ime_content_type($name);
$ size = f ilesize($name);

h eader("C ontent-length: $size");
h eader("C ontent-type: $type");
h eader("C ontent-Disposition: attachment; f ilename=$ name");
echo f ile_get_contents($ file);[/code]

remove the random spaces I've put throughout
