[resolved] Zip Files (8 posts)

    I can not get WordPress to allow me to share zip files from my site. It responds with a 404 page. I have tried searching the web and this forum but WordPress zip 404 returns a lot of unrelated information.

    The URL is fine with no special char.

    Please advise.

    Thank you,

    William Moore

    How are you adding these zip files to your Pages or Posts?

    I started with just uploading and sharing a link with one of my customers. I then tried placing a link on a page I created called downloads.

    The files are uploaded in the root directory of the site.

    How exactly did you add the zip file link to the downloads page?

    Hang on.. you're not uploading this file via WordPress? Why not?

    I added it by manually typing the address. I uploaded them via FTP. They are 500MB.

    Never mind. I am an idiot. I had the files in my old website directory.

    Thanks for you patience,
