  • The song files can't be accessed directly. The purchased files are stored in a special directory called ms-downloads, the ms-downloads directory includes a .htaccess file that forbid the access from browser. The file can be accessed only through a server side script that validates the purchase.

  • The Music Store determines the validity of download links based in two options, available in the settings page of plugin. -- It is possible define a time period, in days, where a download link is considered valid.
