Hi,

I am currently working on a client section for our website where we can put files for specified clients. The client needs to login (membership module) and will see all uploaded files that are linked to his account. The client can download the files bij clicking on "download".

Now, for security reasons i would like to encrypt the URL of the download link. Is this possible and how to do it?

The idea behind this code is to create a simple own written "file manager" where we can share large files with our customers.

Can someone help me with this?

Thank you!

Hi,

To hide the path or url of a file you're downloading you can look into a third party script. This thread is a good place to start:

This should get you started. Let me know if you have any questions.

Hope this helps.

take care about google spiders could index your stats file.

sometimes statistics show some of the top visited links and can show too much info.

Hi Flamerz,

I think that can be solved using robots.txt to disallow the whole "client area" where i want to put the "file-manager"

Re: [nkerschgens] Encrypt download link for every uploaded file

i think you can build some system to create "one use only" link, same way as the password recovery systems. (i think using salt trick).
