Support » Plugin: mb.miniAudioPlayer - an HTML5 audio player for your mp3 files » Server requires allow_url_fopen enabled for downloads to work

  • Resolved brianWP


    The only way I can seem to get downloads to work is if I enabled allow_url_fopen, which is obviously a big security issue. The site in question is on a shared hosting server and they recommend not enabling allow_url_fopen.

    Any other solutions you recommend to allow downloads but disable allow_url_fopen ?

    The plugin fallsback to the libcurl if allow_url_fopen is set to OFF.
    Of course you need the libcurl module to be active on your server.

    All the logic is in the map_download.php file.

    With the latest release you can check the “Use default browser download capabilities” option to prevent this kind of issue. The download will be done via the HTML5 “download” capability instead of via PHP.
