Hi Erwin, and anyone else too.
It's me again. Maybe you are able to solve another problem for me. The last Scriptcode I returned to you is working fine in IE6 and below (I believe), but a friend of mine tried to download a tared file with IE on MacOS. After checking this behaviour (I'm not really able to do a real check, because I'm not really able to understand what really happens with theese mime-types), I thought about to check it in Netscape too, and later Mozilla in Mac and Win, but it worked nowhere else than in IE 6 until now. In Netscape the download starts and a 10 KB file is safed to disk called download.php. In Mozilla the download starts and a file named picture_name.tar.php is safed. Size 10KB. The main picture Size is still 406 KB, packed as a Tar File it's 410 KB. Thats the problem I need a solvation for. I read something about theese headers on php.net. There was an workaround for the circumstace that the download would not start in IE but not in the other direction. So please, if you know some more, please share it with me. There are only two days left, to finish my project. So I'm really in trouble. After this projekt I will step up and start learning Linux and Apache configuration to the fullest. So later I maybe will be an helpfull guy too. Greetz Sascha PS.: Just for remembrance, the old working samplecode: <!-- download.php --> <? Header('Content-Type: application/x-tar'); Header("Content-disposition: filename=".$_REQUEST['name'].".tar"); $dir = explode("/", $_REQUEST['image']); chdir('../images/'.$dir['0']."/".$dir['1']."/".$dir['2']."/"); $command = 'tar -cf - '.$_REQUEST['name'].'.jpg'; passthru($command); // Insert the download into order_db for statistic use include('global.inc.php'); $Query = "INSERT INTO order_db (id, user_id, image_id, date, time) "; $Query .= "VALUES ('','".$_REQUEST['customer_id']."','".$_REQUEST['image_id']."','".date('Y-m-d')."','".date('H:i:s')."')"; mysql_query($Query, $connect); ?>
