Auto save web server files
Posted on 2012-03-15
We have a php / MySQL app that generates files from a web server MySQL database. One is a zip file, another a txt.
Right now when the app runs, it shows a page with two links, saying to right click the link to download. Then the user has to specify the location on their computer where to save the files.
This app will run in a controlled environment on a SPECIFIC computer. We know the director(ies) where we want the files saved.
Is there any way to fully automate this so that the files get saved where we want them without the user having to specify the path every time? We could have the path coded into the web server app.
