Hi friends. Right now, we have no choice but to use RW 5.3.1 with Stacks 2.5.4. Our site has a file downloads page for which we use True Download 1.0.7. Most of our downloads are PDFs, so we zip them before upload because we need them to write to disk rather than open in a browser.
However, we have one encrypted DAT file that need not appear on the Downloads page - but it must be accessible to and downloadable by our software when the “Update Database” command is selected.
If we DO provide a HTML text link on the page, the file downloads with the name “Unknown” rather than “Frequencies.dat.” If we use a True Download stack, it downloads as “Frequencies.dat.zip” - which our software can’t decompress.
We’ve talked to the service provider tech support, and they say this is caused by the coding of our site - but we can find no control or preference for file compression in RW or True Download.
What we really need is NOT to put the file on the page, but to have it on the server with an URL our software can use to download it uncompressed with its correct name and file format - “Frequencies.dat.”
None of us here are web experts. So your urgent advice would be most appreciated. We have a new version of our software scheduled to be released on 1 January, and we’re in big trouble if we can’t make that deadline.
Namaste, and much love and light to you all.
