Simple downoad file script problem

I'm having a "get.php" script as dumb as this:


// get.php

header('Content-Type: image/jpeg');
header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="KG800_01L.jpg"');
header('Accept-Ranges: bytes');
header('Pragma: no-cache');
header('Expires: 0');
header('Cache-Control: must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0');
header('Content-transfer-encoding: binary');
header('Content-length: ' . @filesize('KG800_01L.jpg'));


Which works OK on IE and FireFox, but on the browser from my mobile phones it tries to download the "get.php" file, instead of downloading the image file.

Is there something missing on that script? I really need to make the browser capable of retrieving the file this way, thanks.

I don't see anything reading through it quickly. It cannot download the php file, however, as it is already interpreted and sent out by the server. By downloading the "php" file, it should be downloading the image file because that it what the script is outputing. I do not work with mobile browsers at all, so maybe someone else can shed some light on your situation.

I wish you luck! :)

yes, it will still download the picture, but mobile browser has some problems with determining file name.

header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="KG800_01L.jpg"');

Try removing quotes surrounding file name, like

header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=KG800_01L.jpg');
