headers questions

Recommended Posts

How do you force the download dialog box come up for a file using headers.

for example when someone goes to my page:@

www.somewhere.com/download_file.php?File=cheese

i want them to download cheese.zip or what ever, i am told you can do that with headers but how?

[code]$ name = $_GET['File'];
$ size = f ilesize($name);
$ type = m ime_content_type($name);
$ content = f ile_get_contents($name);

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

Remove the spaces in the function names and such.

Not necessarily...you can put it where ever you want, you just need to either pass the location as a part of the variable, or if they are all in a different sub directory, you can code it that way. Or you can store file names and locations in an array, then pass the array key as the var...kind of like an id.

It doesn't have to be in the same directory.
