I'm having a problem attaching zip files to forum posts. The zip files open ok on my pc and if I send them to someone they can open them. But when I attach the same file to a forum post, when i save it to my pc and try to open it, I get the error message that it is corrupt or invalid. :( Do any of you guys know why this might be?

I just did a test. I had to create a folder in /uploads called newbb and give it write permissions. After I created teh folder I was able to upload and download zip files without probelms.
Worked in IE and FF.

Im also using the latest newbb version from dev forge.

I have created a folder called newbb in my uploads and given it 777 permissions. checked my forum admin and it had the uploads set for uploads/forum so I changed it to uploads/newbb.

I then went to a post and added a file.

I then clicked on the file in the post and now it's asking me if I want to download the file dl_attachment.php hmmm now thats certainly not right.

Anyone know what the problem is there?


If I use ftp and check the contents of the uploads/newbb folder, the file is there (renamed by xoops) and if I use ftp to transfare it back to my pc, I can open it no problem.

The files in the folder have -rw-r--r-- permissions

Seems to be an Internet Explorer thing as the files work fine in Firefox. I can download and extract them fine.

Anyone else having this problem with IE? As most of my visitors use IE, I really need it working with IE. I can just tell them all to get Firefox or not use my site now can I lol

Anyone?

Everything seems to work fine using WF-Downloads.

No problems there when downloading zip files through IE, just in my Newbb2 :(
