Dear All,

I'm searching a code which allow the user to download directly a file from the php web page. Has anyone knows how to do it? It seems to be a simple coding.


Do you mean like this?

echo '<xmp>'; //show pure html instead of styling
echo file_get_contents('');
echo '</xmp>';

Dear Sir,

I have tried your script but i'm getting errors.

[<a href='function.file-get-contents'>function.file-get-contents</a>]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found in


That means the file does not exist. If you wish not to see the error an alternative would be curl.

Yes you are right i'm putting the domain name when i was doing test on my pc.

Thanks a lot

Thanks very much. It was exactly what i was searching for.

Thanks again
