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 .
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?
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'm setting up a web site for my online music library, doing it the hard way and learning as I go!
What I want to do I keep all the audio files secure so only registered users can get at them, how do I do this? FTP? permissions? Can I pass the user data from the client database somehow or do I have to set it up manually for each client?
I'm using php and mysql and have a table set up with all the file locations in it and that side of things is mostly working well. Once a user gets the URL of the file how do I make sure only that user can download the file?
I've tried searching the web for info but I have the sneaking suspicion I'm not asking the right question.
On my server, users can connect to any database as long as they have the database user and password. This makes it easier to hack any database on the server. What I want to do is to make the users can only connect to their own databases and not other's.
I tried changing the localhost ip address but it didn't work ( I assume I didn't do it the right way)
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 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.
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 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.
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?
how can i stop downloading from my server with any accelerator programmes? because when anyone use these programmes the programme make more than 8 connection for 1 person and that make a very very load to my server
I've got a client who seems to be having a problem with his e-mail on my VPS.
When he tries to download mails his browser(thunderbird) says 'Receiving one of 80' and hangs. The only solution is to go into webmail and delete some of the mails then try and receive them again. One thing that puzzles me is he doesn't have 80 mails in his account, he only have 33.
This isn't happening with anyone else who's using thunderbird and my VPS.
