  1. Sometimes we need to download files as attachment in PHP. This code can ideally be called on a hyperlink.

    $filename = “myImage.jpg”;

    if(file_exists($filename)) {

    header(“Content-disposition: attachment; filename={$filename}”);

    //Tell the filename to the browser

    header(‘Content-type: application/octet-stream’);

    //Stream as a binary file! So it would force browser to download


    //Read and stream the file


    echo “Sorry, the file does not exist!”;
