Creating a file to Download dynamically in an https / SSL connection

Here is a tip when you are programming something that you want your file’s path to be hidden. It’s specially when its under a secure connection or https or SSL connection.

Hi there, 

Here is a tip when you are programming something that you want your file’s path to be hidden. It’s specially when its under a secure connection or https or SSL connection.

  1. Remember the mime type ea. image/jpg
  2. Remember the file name ea. image.jpg
  3. Remember not to put expiration and no-cache on your header
  4. Remember to open it on another tab or window as much as possible
  5. When you are debugging you can remove the headers so the file won’t be downloaded

Hope this tips can help you specially #3 because your download will fail on lower version of IE.

Thanks,
