    Well This is probably a stupid question but I'm having an issue and not sure what is causing it. I am trying to copy some backup files out of the /backup/cpanel/daily/ folder. I have moved them where i want to download them from and for some reason only half of them are downloadable. I have done this several times with no problems but on this box it will not let me download some of them. I changed the permissions they are all EXACTLY the same yet only a couple of them will download. Please let me know if you know what is stopping me from downloading them. Here is the page where they all are.

    http://72.29.72.121/~save/back/

    Here are the permissions

    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4074913397 Jun 3 13:57 nhalaco.tar.gz
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2404 Jun 3 13:57 savecom.tar.gz
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2388 Jun 3 13:57 save.tar.gz
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3141927326 Jun 3 14:01 thanhtam.tar.gz
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3728010429 Jun 3 14:04 tiennuc.tar.gz
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5587 Jun 3 14:04 transfer.tar.gz
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 10199601973 Jun 3 14:14 vuonhong.tar.gz

    Doesnt make sense why some of them will download and some wont. Im confused ;) Thanks in advance

    I had a problem like that on a friends server with large .tar.gz's. I never did figure out why but I just used the oldschool cmd line ftp to put the files where I needed them.

    Hello,

    I tried to access the folder through the following link "http://72.29.72.121/~save/". But I didn't see the "back" folder in this directory. Please create a directory "back"in /home/save/public_html folder and move the files to that directory. Then change the ownership and permission of file to the correct value. May be this will help you to solve this issue.

    Let me know the status.

    I'm not sure about httpd but if you've tried via ftp (pure-ftpd) here is why:

    --with-largefile: support downloading of files larger than 2 gigabytes on
    32-bit architectures. Transfering so huge files through FTP is a strange
    idea. And your filesystem has to support it. Your kernel and your libc as
    well. And of course, the FTP client has to be safe against large files, too.
    And when this feature is enabled, downloads can be a bit slower (or more
    cpu-intensive) than without it, due to a limitation of actual Linux kernels.
    To summarize: don't enable this for fun, just if you are really planning to
    download files over 2 gigabytes.

    I'm in the process of figured out how to recompile pure-ftpd with this option using whm.
