Hi Tamertest, I run a similar store. I suggest the following:

 

1. You rename the download-folder. This is the first place hackers take a look at. In the catalog/download.php, you just replace the folder name, too. Make sure it is mod. 777. You can change every mod by using a small php file like this:

 

<?php

chmod('catalog/download', 0777);

?>

 

You just have to write it into a texfile and rename the file to chmod.php and when you FTP it to your webspace and run it in your browser, you can change every mod. That's it. Have the file deleted from your webspace after changes are made, but keep it on your harddisk.

 

2. Configure your download settings. GZip shall run on true, but unless your store is not frequented so much, select a low level in the beginning. Enable download=true und enable download by redirect=false.

 

3. You go for the product attributes and create a new one, call it 'download' and give it the attribute 'yes'. (The new product attribute is to be in the same listwhere you find size, color, etc.) In your cataloge, make sure digital goods are given a weight=0.

 

So far, I hope this will help you out.

 

All my best wishes to you!

I have seen this problem with digital media and oscommerce a lot in forums since 2006 i haven't seen a succesful answer yet. I use oscommerce succesfully for standard stores its a wonderful program. I tried getting it to work with digital downloads but couldn't. I have the configuration set properly, the attributes set correctly, the configure.php is is also fine forward slashes etc after folder names, the folder permissions are also correct, i have tried different filenames and filetypes for the download, but alas it does not work, after the order is paid and processed there is no download link. Clearly it does work for a lot of people but it's a pity this aspect of such a good program is not consistant, as there are a lot of people who have set it up properly for whom it still wont work.

I agree. I never could get it to work with video downloads. It had the link and everything, but the thing would download empty every time, even though it was there. After 2 months of wrangling with the damn thing, I stopped the whole notion of being able to do it.
