I was asked to redesign one web site. Nothing much complicated. I've got username and pass to hosting provider. Now I can see the files of web site that are already there but how can I download them because only upload seems to be possible. And if so why is that so?
Has anybody ever come across a server problem, where the file is visited (e.g. domain.com/sub/file.html or domain.com/sub/file2.php) it attempts to download the file automatically as apposed to displaying the page?
I run a download website boasting many files (entirely legal, non-pornographic), the sizes of which range from 100KB to 500MB. Some users of the site seem to be complaining of the files not downloading and or being truncated (i.e: it says it has been downloaded even though it has not been fully downloaded.)
Here is one reply I received:
"No specific massage appears, only sign the download is complete and infact it is not. About 7 mega down loaded instead of 79 mega. I use fire fox browser and ADSL internet line speed 512"
All the files however do seem to download perfectly on my computer, though I have a good 8mb line, which leads me to believe it may be something to do with a timeout setting?
if it is possible to allow only one ip downloading files from a directory at a time.web server is apache , may be with some apache module or if there is some build in configuration can be applied to .htaccess .
When I download a file from my server, only specific extensions are working. This is really annoying since I want to be able to see how much time left to finish a download.
For example I uploaded a video with .vob extension file.vob --> does not show filesize when downloading
If I rename the same file to different extension: file.avi --> works fine shows filesize when downloading file.mp3 --> works fine shows filesize when downloading file.rar --> works fine shows filesize when downloading file.mp4 --> does not show filesize when downloading file.wmv --> does not show filesize when downloading
These are direct download links, not using any download scripts or anything. Why are some extensions displaying the filesize and some not displaying them? I am using Apache 2.x server.
I have no download possibility on some computers from where I access internet, but I frequently need it.
Can I download files from the internet resource sites directly to a hosting server (just like on a PC)? Can I do it with SSH? What are minimum requirements? SSH on a shared hosting? VPS with root acces?
This is my 2nd server,i had a server with leaseweb and no probs wat so ever setting up utorrent on it.
Ive set it up on my 1%1 server but nothing is moving,ive tried random ports,ive tried turning the cisco firewall of on the 1&1 web page control pannel,but nothing moves wat so ever.
What have i missed here,theres no way they can block all ports...it says on there site all ports are avilible,but even if i picked a random port,and wasnt connectable it would still download just slow,any1 else with a 1&1 server had downloading probs with utorrnte.
I installed apache, mysql, php on my windows vista laptop, and want to test http downloading. This means when selecting a file (for example, contact.php) from a page, and then click download, it will be downloaded to my desktop.
Do we need to install any other softwares to do that?
When i try to upload a image files to the linux based shared hosting server application with java and .Jsp files
(using apache common file upload) the following exception is getting...! java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.io.FilePermission /var/chroot/home/content/h/e/r/heritageameric/html/heritageshopping/abc.txt write)
Hosting people suggesting me that i need .htaccess file to solve and get write permission..!
But iam completely new to this .htaccess file concept..!
I have a website on bluehost and i have a major problem in downloading speed from my site. for ex. if you went to any game page on my site "that download the game to play" the download time for the game "flash file" take DOUBLE the normal time.
I am on shared hosting, i know it may be less perfect but not to that level of slowness.
I have no errors in the log file .
When i searched for the server i found it has 1260 web sites.
My site www.samargames.com and you may check for game page.
how to solve the slow of downloading the flash files from my BH account.
I'm trying to migrate my vps to another server, and basically I need to move the entire public_html directory from first server to the second. As its almost 2.5 gb, downloading and ftping isn't really an option, so I'm thinking i need to tar and then gzip it, and then somehow transfer it diectly.
so my question is what is the proper command to use for tar and gzip in this case? and what method to transfer. should i use wget or is there a better way. Once i have it on my destination server how do i untar it, and what path will it untar to?
I need a hosting with 5-10 GB Hard-drive Space and about 500 GB of bandwidth (maybe a bit less). Without any features (apache, php, etc). I need only Ftp to upload and share video files.But not very expensive, not more than $10-$20.
i am confused which one is better VPS or Dedi ? my budget is very low under $25-20 / Month , I saw some dedi offers for $30/month from prontoserver i think is that Good? or Go with a VPS? i need 60GB and 400GB of bw so what is the best thing?
A friend of mine has an account with a hosting company that recently became unstable and he wants to move his site away.
I downloaded the files, but it now seems impossible to download the databases in the conventional ways.
I tried downloading them using their control panel (vDeck) but I get an error "File Permissions do not allow to download backup".
Then I tried to export it using PHPMyAdmin but the files either doesn't download at all, or it downloads inccomplete with the last lines having something like the following:
Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /usr/local/apache/htdocs/phpMyAdmin-2.6.3/export.php:121
I tried to contact their support but they have no clue.
Is there any way to download the database? I thought of creating a script that would manually itterate through the tables and create an export fie similar to what phpMyAdmin creates. I don't know if this is possible, and I hope there are better ways.
I have a little project for a website that contains some of Downloadable files and Media Files!
In my calculation..., I may use about 50 GB storage and if the number of visiors is as what im expected i'll need 1 TB bandwith or some less!
== let's talk about the hosting part here i know that there are some companies that over more than 300 gb storage and more that 3 TB of traffic!
but i don't think they are going to work with my project so... i searched for a vps to start my project ..., and im thinking in dedicated server in the future..,so let's not talk about the future right now!
I want to talk about the ability of vps for downloads hosting! the vps I've found is this one:
Disk Space : 60,000 MB (60 GB) Number of Domains : Unlimited Domains CPU Limit : Equal Share Guranteed Memory : 512 MB Burstable Memory : 2048 MB Monthly Bandwidth : 2,000 GB Included Control Panel : cPanel / WHM
I am using a flash media player on one of my domains that streams music. The flash player would be like domain.com/music
The mp3 files are located in domain.com/music/mp3
The flash player just reads the title of the song and displays it in the media player.
I have used htaccess already to disable indexing, but the file name that shows on the media player is the exact name of the mp3, so I'm pretty sure people will be able to easily figure this out and start downloading our music.
What else can I add to htaccess to allow localhost access to the music, to stream with the flash player, but wont allow downloading of the mp3s.
