Doesn't work on iPhone, Safari, or IE as of today. Printing not allowed. It's because the writers have left out the all important flush after each read. Using pieces of the forced download script, adding in MySQL database functions, and hiding the file location for security was what we needed for downloading wmv files from our members creations without prompting Media player as well as secure the file itself and use only database queries. Mon, 26 Jul I was trying to use readfile in IE8 and kept getting the message "failed to get data for 'type'". Initial zoom type:

Be careful when using this code verbatim, though. This code is likely dangerous in another way. Could be used by an attacker to attempt to scan your internal network for exposed PDF files. Not to mention how easy it would be to bypass any "sanity checks" you think you'll be doing to the "file" parameter. This is a common issue but few people know there's a simple HTML 5 solution: Or it will default to the filename on the serverside if you leave it empty, like this: Martin Gottweis 2, 9 This is a simple solution but unfortunately not very widely supported, esp.
Yep, I know right. That's why I have the side-note on compatibility. And according to your source both IE and Safari don't support this approach, or at least not yet: Anyhow, if you want all browsers to force download I suggest checking some of the other answers instead The solution is easy but unfortunately not supported in IE and Safari. Doesn't work on iPhone, Safari, or IE as of today.

In your controller: Where to wrote this code? If you need a PHP example, look at the ones further up the thread, but please read the comments about how they could be insecure.

Just a note: A mime-type-independent forced download can also be conducted by using: Mon, 26 Jul If you are looking for an algorithm that will allow you to download force download a big file, may this one will help you. File Transfer' ; header 'Content-Type: Using pieces of the forced download script, adding in MySQL database functions, and hiding the file location for security was what we needed for downloading wmv files from our members creations without prompting Media player as well as secure the file itself and use only database queries.
Something to the effect below, very customizable for private access, remote files, and keeping order of your online media.
Of course you need to setup the DB, table, and columns. I have a link on my site to a script that outputs an XML file to the browser with the below code: However, if this setting is checked, and browser windows are being re-used, then it will open up on top of the page where the link was clicked to access the script.
But, if the setting is unchecked, the output XML file will open up in a new window and there will be another blank window also open that has the address of the script, in addition to our original window.
This is far from ideal, and there is no way of knowing whether users have this option checked or not. But there are some headers, which PHP itself outputs automatically, disturbing this. So I wrote this function with erasing these. I think that readfile suffers from the maximum script execution time.
The readfile is always completed even if it exceed the default 30 seconds limit, then the script is aborted. Be warned that you can get very odd behaviour not only on large files, but also on small files if the user has a slow connection. I wasted days trying to figure this out before I found the problem was easily solved. I'm sure many of you out there have had similar problem when trying to use readfile to output images with a php file as the "src" of a "img" tag.
It works fine "as is" in Firefox but not in IE, Safari or g. I found hundreds of results on google all saying things like "there must be white space at the end of you code", "you need this header or that header". I couldn't believe what the solution was but here it is anyway! Remove the "Width" and "Height" attributes from your "img" tag.
Test especially for strings like ".. If possible only permit characters a-z, A-Z and and make it possible to only download from one "download-folder". Beware - the chunky readfile suggested by Rob Funk can easily exceed you maximum script execution time 30 seconds by default. I didn't benchmark further, but I'd be willing to bet non-mmap'able streams still win because they can loop in C instead of PHP.
If you are using the procedures outlined in this article to force sending a file to a user, you may find that the "Content-Length" header is not being sent on some servers. The reason this occurs is because some servers are setup by default to enable gzip compression, which sends an additional header for such operations. This additional header is "Transfer-Encoding: Of course, this is not required if you are using the intelligent versions of readfile in this article.
A missing Content-Length header implies the following: The easiest way to disable this behaviour is with the following.
SetEnv no-gzip dont-vary. Elliott Brueggeman What's the point of a user's settings if not to determine their environment? If they have it set a specific way, honor their setting. To use readfile it is absolutely necessary to set the mime-type before. If you are using an Apache, it's quite simple to figure out the correct mime type. Apache has a file called "mime. Use this or another function to get a list of mime-types: Cheers Philipp Heckel. Beware of using download managers..
