O.P. PHP & IE using headers to add file as an attachment...
Ok so I have a situation and it is confusing me as this works fine in Firefox.

PHP code:
<?
    $path = '/home/ss/plsc/';
    $f = scandir( $path );
    rsort ( $f );
 
    $file = '/home/ss/plsc/'.$f[0];
    header("Pragma: public");
    header("Expires: 0");
    header("Cache-Control: must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0");
    header("Cache-Control: public");
    header("Content-Description: File Transfer");
    header("Content-Type: application/zip");
    header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=\"".basename($file)."\"");
    header("Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary");
    header('Content-Length: ' . filesize($file));
    readfile($file);
?>


I have the above code. This simply grabs the last PLSC built on the server for download. There are no problems at all in Firefox. However in IE you end up with a PLSC that inside has the PLSC again without an extension... I also added the mime type using .htaccess

[Image: attachment.php?pid=984168]

I am at a loss...

This file has been downloaded 181 time(s).

It appears that your plsc file is actually tar-gzipped, not zipped. How did you compress to make the plsc file?

I used a PHP Zip library. That file inside the zip you see is a ZIP without an extension. IE downloaded it as a GZIP Firefox downloads it as a ZIP.

Hmm. :-/

Try adding a
Content-Encoding: gzip
header.
