File Does Not Exist Error

E-mail Print PDF
Your website folder name can not have "".  A "dot" is usually reserved for files so if you have a folder named this the download won't work.  The best solution is to store your downloads in a folder outside of your webroot.

Joomla install



Where your folder should be




If you are getting a file does not exist error perform the following steps:


1. Open  components/com_maian15/classes/ and search for the function forcedownload

in this function locate the following code:

if (!file_exists($archiveName)) {
            echo $msg;

Change it to

if (!file_exists($archiveName)) {
            echo $archiveName;

Now instead of getting the
File Does Not Exist!! error you will see how your downloads are being generated.
