Thank you this is very helpful. If I have 300 GB of files, which is better for uploading the files to? My server or another cloud?
Darrel Wilson (1 month ago)
you can always host this from another server like amazon AWS
Pretty cool... I'll have to add this to my site sometime in the near future.

THANK YOU!! I've been searching for this tutorial for an hour now and wanted to offer a free download because paypal was confused. So thank you! Also do you happen to know if I have to create a "Thank you" or "Confirmation" page for every item I add in order for the person to download? THanks in advance.

Thank you.. Was really helpful.. One question - can we do the same for image links? Instead of a word, can we do it on images?
NeddyRich (4 months ago)
But how does one make the existing page into a download file? I do not understand much about files. An image is simple because it is already in a file form but what about a page? I have been searching for hours and no one can explain this. How to make a wordpress into a zip file?? you do not explain this, so the tutorial is not helpful at all because you assume people know how to do this.

Go to your cpanel, go to your software panel and click on select php version, better use 7.1which is stable and fast now, the click on switch to php options on the top right then you will find post_max_size 8M click on the "8M" then modify it 16,32,64 or whatever MB you want
dushyant idhatia (5 months ago)
but how ?
violatoooooor (5 months ago)
Increase that in your cpnel or wordpress user settings

does it work with apk files?
G'day Darrel. Thank you for a great and easy to understand video. I have just subscribed to your station. Can you help me please and perhaps you could put up a tutorial on my question. I am a complete beginner with WP, but I now have a website up and running with the help of an expert :) I know how to upload files and put them in a folder and get the download link to give to folk. BUT when I look at the download link and remove a few characters from the link, and then click on the link I can see ALL the files in the folder. For example. Here is a dummy link for a file download http://this is my site just for you.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/AUSTRALIAN-SUN.jpg If someone visits the site and shortens the URL to http://this is my site just for you.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2017/10 then all files in the upload folder can be seen and any of the files can be downloaded :( Is there a way to protect a folder, so that only a specific file in the folder can be downloaded via a URL and the URL cannot be shortened to show all the files in the folder? I also have the CPpanel at my site. Thank you for your help and keep up the great work assisting so many people. Best wishes and seeya.
