Question by Starx
I am trying to force the user to download a file. For that my script is:
$file = "filethis.zip"; header("Cache-Control: public"); header("Content-Description: File Transfer"); header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=$file"); header("Content-Type: application/zip"); //This is what I need header("Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary"); readfile($file);
The files I am going to upload my not be .zip all the time so I want to know the content type of the image I am going to receive in $file.
How to accomplish this
Answer by cjk
I always put
application/octet-stream (or somwething like that) as the browser can’t then try and display it in any way, it will always force the user to Save / Run, then the file type is often inferred by the extension.

Ok, I did it myself.
$type = filetype($file); //to know the type
