Yep, but you might want to make sure and wait for someone else to confirm my answer as I am not confident. Better yet, why don't you contact the iPage guys because they can answer your iPage question better...
Was the order status set to "delivered"?.
Files in the download folder? download and pubs folders all 777?.
I deleted everything to do with the product properties and re-created that from scratch. Prior to doing that, I confirmed permission settings..
Now, The download is Immediately available to the user - even when the status is set to processing or pending. Isn't there a way to have it wait until the status is changed to delivered or something other than processing/pending?? Or do I have to code that myself..
- For instance, you don't want someone to immediately be capable of downloading the file while you wait for their check or paypal payment to clear..
I quickly browsed through the code in downloads.php and there doesn't appear to be any type of check for status setting, just whether or not downloads are enabled and for how long and how many times..
I thought the current out of the box version of oscommerce only created the download link when the order was set to "delivered". Maybe someone can clarify this one??.
In the meantime I have also seen many folks installing the "Download Controller" contribution that definetly allows you to specify particular status of an order before creating the download link..
You is correct order needs to set "delivered" for out of box osc and you is further correct for Donload Controller..
How are you testing whether this actually works or not?.
I'm receiving payments via PayPal, and it obviously won't let me send money to myself. I tried setting up COD as a payment type, but it doesn't list COD when I check out if I add my intended download to the cart...
I am gonna be selling zipsa collection of pictures. I want to add a feature that is part of the shopping cartwhen the payment goes through to PayPal, they are able to download the zips purchased. Maybe a link or a page with their purchase. I want to keep it secureso that nobody can get to them. If someone can help, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
The zips will be between 5 and 20 mb..
Have a great day!..
Yeah, I followed that doc too, but the download isn't available. That doc isn't quite detailed enough..
