Feel free to shoot me for asking very dumb questions I have two:

 

Firstly when the download this file link is lciked in my account it tries to download it as a htm file it's an mp3 why is this?

 

Secondly how do stop people from downloading files simply by going to www.mysite.com/downloads/file.mp3 and by passing the payment system?

 

Thanks a million guys

somewhere in the osC site is the manual, look up at the top menu bar 'solutions' 'documentation'. There is a list of specific rules to follow for your download, it's all there, too long to list here when it's already been done. Read & learn & follow the steps just-so and it will solve both your problems.

Up at the top of this browser screen, under 'oscommerce' there's the list of menu items, the blue one is 'solutions' and the documentation can be had there.

 

For the other, the admin option "download by redirect" under configuration/download creates a file on the fly when a logged-in customer requests it. So your real file isn't accessible as it is protected by .htaccess. otherwise, you might check into the "downloads controller" MOD, lots of good stuff there.

 

If you don't have an .htaccess in your folder "downloads" that may be the problem.

--> www.mysite.com/downloads/file.mp3

 

hope that gets you more joy - - -
