Hi!

I have the following script on a site (dl.php):
$size = filesize("/home/b2048/dokument/" . $dok);
header("Content-Type: application/octet-stream");
header("Content-Length: $size");
header("Content-Disposition: inline; filename=$name");
header("Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary");
$fh = fopen("/home/b2048/dokument/" . $dok, "r");
fpassthru($fh);
exit;

It gets the specified file from a folder outside the www-root. When the Save as dialog box pop ups in IE it wants to save the document as dl.php. I want it to save it as the original filename (example: document.doc) without me editing it in the save as dialog. Is it possible to make PHP pass the filename in some way so it doesn't say dl.php?

Thanks!

/David

Hey David...

Do you see this line?

header("Content-Disposition: inline; filename=$name");

$name in that line is supposed to be the filename that you want it saved as. Try setting the $name variable to "document.doc" and see if that helps.

$name = "document.doc";
$size = filesize("/home/b2048/dokument/" . $dok);
header("Content-Type: application/octet-stream");
header("Content-Length: $size");
header("Content-Disposition: inline; filename=$name");
header("Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary");
$fh = fopen("/home/b2048/dokument/" . $dok, "r");
fpassthru($fh);
exit;


Let me know if that helps...

It worked!
I changed the variable to $dok instead of $name.

The points are yours :-)
