    Hello,

    here's what I'm trying to achieve but I'm not sure now to achieve it. I want to make a website that allows people to purchase music charts (PDF files) that can be downloaded and accessed after purchase. However, my fear is that someone may buy the chart and give the download like to others so they can download it without buying, etc. How would I protect the files so users must be signed in AND must have purchased the file to be able to download it? I am using BoxBilling for my billing client.

    Thanks,
    Christian

    Hello :)

    You will likely need to search for a third-party application with this functionality. You may receive more user-feedback on a forum dedicated to discussions of website design or website development, as the forums here are primarily intended for discussion of the cPanel/WHM software itself.

    Thank you.
