Download filename wrong in Mac browsers


Recommended Posts



First let me say thanks to those that posted solutions for getting SSL to work. Mine is switching and working beautifully, and also those who posted solutions to large file downloads using download.php - also working.


However, when a customer downloads their purchased file, the filename always defaults to download.php


I have searched these forums and I understand that there may be a bug in IE 4 concerning this, but this also occurs when using Safari and I have seen no mention of a problem using Safari.


Is this a Mac bug then?


Does anyone have a definitive solution to this? I have tried writing the

header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename= etc

line half a dozen different ways but it still defaults to download.php


I am a php novice though, so can anyone help me out here please?
