Hi Navaldesign,
I have a few question about "How to protect a download" !

- Why with this method is low speed download ?
- Why Pause button is disabled in the download manager programs (For example: IDM and ...) ?
- Is there a way to high speed download or not ?

In just a few words: No
The download is not immediate but through the script that "reads" the file and outputs it to the browser, so it is slower than a direct download.

However the difference should be minimum and not visible to the user.

I don't know why the "Pause" button is disabled. Furthermore the script might have issues with Download Managers as they usually download an empty php file instead of the file itself.

Hello Naval

Dont know if still monitor this old thread but just in case ...

I have two problems (as usual ...)

a) whatever the type of file, zip, exe, pdf, the download box say " it is a file of type : PDF" ??

b) I seems have trouble to download big file (70 Mo) but 62 is ok; I got a file with zero bytes, any idea ?

Thanks anyway for your help already

1) Only possible explanation is something wrong in your file names definition, lines

$file[1]= "filename1.pdf";
$file[2]= "filename2.doc";
$file[3]= "filename3.xls";
// Add as many as necessary


Check if the extensions used are correct.

2) There is no reason for this, at least not to my knowledge. Might be a server limitation ?

Thanks for your answer

Everything seems fine in the definition, and everything works well, just this TYPE wich is wrong even if the "Openw with ..." is ok

Anyway not a big deal !

For the file size, I need to check with my hoster, but will be complicate !

Thanks for all

Hello Naval
Hoping you still have an eye on this (old) thread
I try to improve my site step by step and discover recently the "Open link in Lightbox" function, which is working well

To make the process of download more fluent and not too complicate with multiples windows opening, I wonder if it could be possible to open the Login page in a lightbox ??
In this case the visitor stay on the downoload page (dimmed in the background) and when logging is filled successfullt, can click again the link to download

Hoping to be clear

Yes, it is clear, however at the moment I unfortunately don't have the necessary time to see how / if this can be done. Maybe within a few weeks.
