Subject: [PHP] file redirect?

> I'm trying to figure something out and thought I'd see if you guys have

> The goal:  tracking the number of downloads for files on the server.
> The approach:  routing file downloads through /download.php like this:
> http://server/download.php?target=/myfile.zip
> What I tried that worked was using javascript to launch download.php in a
> new window and use a meta tag to redirect to the file in question, like
> print "<meta http-equiv='refresh' content='0; URL=$destination'>";
> This works, but it's really slow, because it usually takes a while to open
> a new browser window.
> I found another approach, but couldn't get it to work:
> $content_type = "Content-type:  application/zip";
> header($content_type);
> header("Content-disposition: filename=".$filename);
> header($destination);
> It seemed I got close at one point... it would open a File Save window,
> the file would end up as 0 bytes in size.
> My preference is using the second approach if I can get it working,
> it's much faster than opening a new browser window.  Any ideas of how to
> make it work?
