Download file error

I've used the file download successfully on other pages but now it just wants to download the page rather than the file.

The first code download the file correctly but the but the download behavior fails!

<a href="../vTskb28R01a/<?php echo htmlspecialchars($row_WADAcmes['upload_cmeRC']); ?>"><?php echo htmlspecialchars($row_WADAcmes['upload_cmeRC']); ?></a>

<?php
WA_DFP_SetupDownloadStatusStruct("WA_DownloadResult1");
if(isset($_POST["downloadReCert"]) || isset($_POST["downloadReCert_x"])){
WA_DFP_DownloadFile("WA_DownloadResult1", "../../BU/vTskb28R01a/reCert/".$_SESSION['idRc'] ."/", "".$row_WADAcmes['upload_cme'] ."", "[FileName]", false, false, false, "", "", "", "");
}
?>

Here is the button

<input type="submit" name="downloadReCert" id="downloadReCert" value="Download" />

could be a php error occurring, or it could be the session is not visible. try adding the following code at line 1:

php:
<?php

@session_start();
error_reporting(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');
?>

New issue

The download seems to work well with files under say 1 meg, but files over say 2 megs download damaged! This appears to be file size issue.

Any thoughts?

you will need to update the php.ini file on the server to increase the Memory_limit Max_execution_time settings to allow enough time and memory for the larger file to download.

those settings look like they should work, but really it depends on your connection speed and how long it takes your host to send the file to your system.

try adding this at line 1 of the page:

php:
<?php set_time_limit(0); ?>
