Support » Plugin: Downloadable Product from Amazon S3 for WooCommerce » Changing File Download Method

    Hello I am running the plugin on my site and testing it right now. The setup part is done, i can see my buckets and choose the files on my products. My issue is that it seems the downloads are always going into FORCE DOWNLOAD mode, even if I set it to REDIRECT ONLY in my woocommerce settings. And since my files are pretty large this causes my transfer to fail. The reason why i am saying that the download method doesn’t seem to change is because I have another site where i use another amazon plugin and when i set the download method to REDIRECT ONLY, I can see the total size of the zip file while the transfer is undergoing. But right now, I do not see the total size, I only see the transfered file size (so basically seeing this during transfer for example: 16MB instead of 16MB/550MB )which is what normally shows when method is on FORCE DOWNLOAD. Any idea?

    Awesome! thanks!

    Also since I have alot of items in my bucket,when I go browse my folder it takes me a long time to get to the file by clicking many times on VIEW MORE until I arrive to my file, is there a way that when I browse bucket, I could see all files and just scroll down, instead of having to click on VIEW MORE?
    thanks for your help

    So what happened when you have 1000+ files? It will take too time to display all files list at a time, so I think if you have many files split it to multiple bucket πŸ™‚

    Thank you πŸ™‚

    patzik, can you enlighten me about the three different file download method options since it sounds like you understand them? My store will be serving big (500MB to 2GB) size downloads. What would be the best method?

    If your file size is too large I would suggest you to use redirect only method πŸ™‚

    Thanks

    Is there any downside to using “redirect only” that I should know about?

    I also have 1-4 GiB sized files, but I set the store to use X-Accel-redirect/X-sendfile. Isn’t that the preferred method for both security and large files?
