DownloadsII

DownloadsII is a download database that integrates into vBulletin. It allows you to upload files, add images to them, create categories, link to external files - and more. It is very flexible and has many options.

It's also coded 100% XHTML 1.0 Transitional valid, just like vBulletin itself.



Instructions & Support

Requires vBulletin 4.0.4 or higher. Not fully compatible with lower vB 4 versions.
It works fine with both the new editor in vB 4.1.4 or higher and the old one in previous vB versions.

Read the instructions in the next two posts before installing/upgrading this mod!

You can find an installation/upgrade manual in the zip package (Readme.txt).

I try to answer most questions asked in this thread. Please don't send any pm's if I don't ask for them. Don't forget to click the install link, so you will receive important update notifications.

Screenshots & Live demo

At the bottom of this post, you can find some screenshots of the front-end and back-end (AdminCP part) of the DownloadsII software.

You can find a live demo on my own site: Minatica.be Downloads (Dutch).
Though keep in mind that we are running a restyled and modified version of it.

Changelog (version 6.0.9)

Jelle
  • Added support for vB 4.1.8 bit processing with 'each' construct (backwards compatible)
  • Fixed comma listing for vB 4.1.8 (using "old" method)
Older changelogs are included in the zip package.

Help!!! I can't upload large files??

This is probably the most asked question. It's mostly caused by some default PHP settings: check "PHP Max Post Size" and "PHP Maximum Upload Size" at your AdminCP home.

Then have a look at this post for the solution to up these values.
Also have a look at this post at vB.com (but ignore the MySQL part as DownloadsII is only using the file system).

Thank you very much for the quick reply but I'm still not getting this...It seems My server c/panel does not let me set permissions for folders, only individual files..and what am I changing permissions for exactly? The download folder? Please understand, I have no idea what chmod 777 is. This is German to me, lol..and I don't speak German. Thanks for your patience..



EDIT: Okay, I figured out how to change permissions, operator error of course..but just to ensure I did this right was it th e"download" file I was supposed to change as in your example?

Yes. And my server can take 20MB files but I can't get uploads to work with anything but small jpgs

Well this is very frustrating. Another 3D Modeling site has this set up and are able to upload very large files. No matter what I try I can't make it work. I really would like to have this work for my site but guess I'll just have to uninstall and find another solution. I guess I just don't understand enough about any of this to make this function.

I've done everything above, set .skp as an acceptable extension, made the file size basically unlimited, checked on my server and I can accept 20M uploads but all I ever get when I try is "Connection Reset" error messages.

I'd like to try this but don't understand this suggestion:

You need to create a file named .htaccess (note the period in front of the name). Put the following two lines into the file:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Upload the file into your forum directory (the same location where downloads.php is located.)

This will increase the size of the file you can upload to 30MB.
Does anyone really understand this well that could elaborate? What kind of file extension is this .htaccess file supposed to be? .php? or something else?..I'm so confused...

I would appreciate some help on the following issue that I have with DownloadsII please...

I have searched this thread and the net and can't find a solution to it:

My members are reporting an error with Downloads II. They have reported gettingthe following error message:

Slow Down! You are trying to download files too quickly. You must wait 60 seconds before you may download another file.

I don't know why it is saying this as I have the wait time set to 20 seconds.

I have checked all my settings in AdminCP and they are correct - IE: -1, -1, -1 and Strict set to "No".

Your help in this would be appreciated.

Also, I don't see this message as Admin as I have no time on the downloads (set to 0).

When I set the members' usergroup (temporary) to 0 too, there were naturally no issues with the dowload times.


Is there a 60 second thing coded into one of DownloadII files somewhere that is causing this issue?



Many thanks,
Welshy2008.

group permissions.. try setting it to 20 or 10

Download DELAY: This is the minimum time in seconds that the user must wait between file downloads. Set this to 0 for there to be NO limit. If you set this number too low, your site could be open to a denial-of-service (DoS) attack! If the user is in multiple groups, the HIGHEST value will be the delay setting.

Thanks for you reply Hippy.


I tried that last night and again just now and our members still have the same problem.

Any other ideas please?
