Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I bump into an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..

Comment #1

Test user set up.

Weights are 0.

Processing w/ paypal.

No I haven't set up free one, wanted to see if whole process worked. I will now tho.

My catalog/pub says it's set to drwxr-xr-x and so is my catalog/download. I know that is wrong. pub is supposed to be different than download. 777 and 755 respectively. whatever the hell that means. I have a Mac and need to change one or both. how do I go about that?..

Comment #2

Pub and download are both 777, use your ftp program to change the properties, right click on the folder and set them, or do it in your host back room area...

Comment #3

Isn't this- drwxrwxrwx - 777 and this- drwxr-xr-x - 755 ? .

Still everything doesn't work anyway. what about the rest of it?.

I am also having trouble with this, can you help??.

(1) if it's a file to download, do I put the file in the /catalog/downloads/ folder?? What do I name the file in the 'product attribute' admin page (do I just type in the 'filename.pdf' into the filename box or do I put 'downloads/filename.pdf'??Is this safe from people just typing in the URL and getting at the file??.

(2) I only have the option to pay by cheque on the iPage site (in development on local PC, not online). When the order process is complete, before the admin has processed payment, the file is available for download. Can this be stopped until the order has been flagged as 'delivered' or at least 'processing'??.

(3) On an order I've placed, I click on the link that directs to a 'download.php?order=x...' page. As we're talking PDF files the browser ask to 'open' or 'download'. If I 'save/download' it works and the file is readable, but if I 'open' it shows an error. The file is fine so is it the download mechanism??.

The biggest thing is the ability to download before the administrator has processed. This is a possible fraud issue..

Thanks in advance...

Do you have a test user email and password setup?.

What are the weights of the products?.

How are you processing payment?.

Have you tried to setup a free download once someone signs in to see how that works?.

An example is here:.

Catalog For Downloads.

Just find one of the sample products (there are two) and then signup and download, these are actual files that way you can see how it does work..
