html Renaming Download File Using Header in PHP?


if (isset($_REQUEST['download'])) {
  {
    $download_id = $_REQUEST['download'];

    // ...

    $filename = $result->TrackPath;
    $outputfilename = $result->ArtisteName . ' ft. ' . $result->FeaturedArtistes . ' - ' . $result->TrackName . '.mp3';

    if (file_exists($filename)) {
      header("Content-Type:  audio/mpeg");
      header("Content-Disposition:  attachment; filename=\"" . basename($outputfilename) . "\";" );
      header("Content-Transfer-Encoding:  binary");

      header('Content-Length: ' . filesize($filename));
      ob_clean();
      flush();
      readfile($filename);
      exit;
    }
  }
}

My PHP is a bit rusty but I can think of one thing with your code, no content length header. Update your code to this and see if that works:

Note that we use flush(); to send the headers to the browser before we start downloading the actual file. And I also added an if (file_exists($filename)) to make sure we have a file to send. I'd recommend you put an else clause there to give you something that will show you if you don't have a file like you expect...

great. works well. the code is clean.
