I have Joomla 1.5 installed, and installed DocMan plugin.  Docman works in all respects except users cannot download files that are properly displayed.  All files are 777 on the server.  Any ideas?

I have Joomla 1.5 installed on Fedora 8, MySQL 5, etc.  Docman plugin (latest available) in installed for document management.  It works in all respects EXCEPT that users cannot download any files.  Neither can administrators.  Files appear as if they are not linked to anything.  ALL files in Joomla (including DocMan) are 777.  Interestingly one can upload files in DocMan perfectly well, just not download.

I've installed and re-installed DocMan and then entire Joomla setup many times, still no joy.

Any help?

What kind of errors you are getting while downloading? is it File Not found(404) or anything else?

Intestingly, I can't download at all because the links created by DocMan when you upload a document, then approve and publish it, are not actually links that work.  They don't seem to go anywhere.  If you hover over them, they change color and become highlighted (possibly a theme thing) but if you click on them absolutely nothing happens.  No download, no beginnings of a download, no error.  It's as if the links are not actually linked to anything even though Docman shows that everything appears OK in terms of permissions, etc.

Are you trying to click on the links while you are logged in to Joomla? If so, what permissions does the account you're logged into have?

I found the answer to this issue.  Thanks for helping, but the answer is actually rather weird.  Docman *looks* like it is installed, but in reality several needed files are not actually copied over during install.  So once these files are copied over, the links work properly.  The files are:  standardbuttons.php and standardbuttons.xml.php and the paths are:

administrator/components/com_docman/plugins/standardbuttons.php
administrator/components/com_docman/plugins/standardbuttons.xml.php
