Hello,

I currently have this setup for a "download a mp3" php page:

<?php
include "class.php";
$account = new account(0);
$id = $_GET['id'];
$u = $_COOKIE['username'];
$a = mysql_fetch_array(mysql_query("SELECT * FROM items WHERE id='$id'"));
$file = $a['actualPath'];
header("Cache-Control: public");
header("Content-Description: File Transfer");
header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=$file");
header("Content-Type: audio/mpeg");
header("Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary");
$q = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM boughtItems WHERE username='$u' AND item='$id'");
if(mysql_num_rows($q) >= 1 || $account->isAdmin() || $account->isServiceRep() || $account->isLoggedIn()){
	//Allow download
	$account->newDownload($id);
	readfile($file);
	print "You may close this tab/window";
}else{
	print "Error: Not authorized";
}
?>

I know that the SQL isn't the best... but let me quickly explain the actual code (functions):

$_COOKIE is a username determining if they are logged in (I know... sessions would likely be better)

$account is a class file (class.php)
isAdmin() checks if admin, returns true/false respectivly
isServiceRep() and isLoggedIn() do the same.

newDownload() is essentially a hit counter.

Then we have the headers, This is where (i think) the issue is.

My headers work in Chrome (I actually get the file) but don't work in:

  • Firefox (In fact it grabs the wrong filename, it assumes a folder, eg full/song.mp3 is really full_song.mp3)
  • Opera (Shows a 0 byte file, gets filename right though.)
  • IE (Same a firefox)
  • Safari (Similar to firefox - shows a - instead of a _)

As well, the text doesn't show up (print) with it's current code or echo.

If anyone can help me with these issues, I would greatly appreciate it!

     die('file not found');
 }
 else
 {
     // Set headers
     header("Cache-Control: public");
     header("Content-Description: File Transfer");
     header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=$file");
     header("Content-Type: application/zip");

I tried those headers, and it caused the same browsers with problems to download it as a .zip file... not .mp3
