Download Protect
[resolved] Download Protect "File does not exist." (5 posts)

    I am using v1.2.0 of Download Protect with 3.2.1 of WP.
    I set the directory of DP to "wp-content/uploads" to match the media directory.
    Used the simple shortcode: [dlprotect file="Home.doc"]Home Document[/dlprotect]
    File shows up on the page when logged in but when trying to download the file I get a blank page with "File does not exist. Make sure you specified correct file name."
    Filename is correct, directory is correct. Permalinks is set to numeric if that bit of info helps.
    Also tried new directory for both media and DP but still get the same error.

    Any help is appreciated, thanks.
