My names Andy and I am an absolute novice. I’d really really appreciate any help anyone is able to give to help me fix my problem!
I have WordPress Audio Player and I am uploading all the MP3s to my FTP, and then writing the links back into WordPress.
I wish to host an MP3 for listening, and then a separate link (Perhaps reading ‘Download’) where users are able to download the the track without being redirected to another page and having to right click save as.
I’m after a solution for a forced download if anyone has one?
.htaccess file is Apache server configuration file. It is hidden by default ([.] before file name in Linux means file is hidden). This file can be found at root level of your website. So whatever default directory you log-in via FTP. Most FTP clients by default ignore any file starting with [.]! So make sure your FTP program is configured to display hidden files and you’ll see .htaccess file. Then just download it, edit and re-upload overwriting the old one. (Remember to back-up original copy)
