Downloads are corrupt

#1 Postby djc » Aug 13, 2008 12:08 am


When downloading a file from the site, it speeds along until 99%, pauses for about 4 seconds, then completes. Problem is, the file is corrupt. If zip, it won't open, of bmp, won't display.

I am able to manually place a test.zip file in the public html and download it by direct URL just fine, so it isn't an Apache issue.

If I upload a zip file, then go into uploads/00000 and temporarily rename the most recent upload to xxxx.zip, it opens fine on the server, so uploading is ok. Integrity is lost on the download.

oh, Windows? Bad choice for web server man :)
But anyway, try this quick fix: in index.cgi after line

Code: Select all

open(my $in_fh,"$c->{target_dir}/$dx/$f->{id}") || die"Can't open source file";


Code: Select all


this will enable binary mode for file descriptor, special function for windows.
