Question

Some of my files are getting played instead of being downloaded when "Generate Direct Links" is enabled. What should I do in order to make the 'Save File' dialog always appearing?

Answer

The way to do that may be depending on your operating system, and generally you have to execute the following commands from SSH (root access is required):

a2enmod headers
apache2 -k graceful
