    I use sitespinner. My os is winxp. I have a small but nice site and I want a page for users to be able to download files. I have in the past directly linked a text or pic or whatever to the file. For some reason I can't get it to work here. I am not very familiar with cPanel x or mysql so maybe that is the problem. I really dunno. help please. TY.

    to be exact i want a user to be able to click a text and begin a d/l from there. Small files that won't take much to d/l. when i try this now the link takes me to index2.php. i don't even use php. LOL. Just when I think I am getting the hang of this I get confused. Ty for the response.

    You can create a new directory/folder in your public_html/ directory, name it "FILES" or whatever you prefer. Upload the files to it, then link your members to the folder. They'll see a basic index list of the files to choose from.

    Set the directory permissions to dis-allow the uploads/write option from members. Cpanel will also allow you to password protect the new directory.
