i was just curious as to if anybody here has used/set up an invisionboard database (where you put stuff up & allow people to download it) i have seen it on a few sites & am thinking of trying to set one up, but i dont know how to or where to start. Any suggestions or of you know of any programs that i could set up that are similar to it *i want to be able to have a preview of what i am offering to download* Please help. :) thanks!!

I have set Invision up to allow downloading of ZIP files that only I can post and only persons granted access to the particular forum can read/download.

 

The way I handle it is I created separate forums for updates. I am the admin of the board and I gave only the Admin rights to post into these forums. I also created groups for access control to these forums.

 

As peole register with my board they are required to PM me with information that I requested so that I can verify they actually purchased said product. Once I determine that they are who they claim to be I change their group level so that they can access the forum with the downloads.

 

Works pretty well in my opinion. :)

In the Admin panel under forum administration select the forum you want to allow uploads into and set the KB limit to what ever you need.

 

You also have to make sure the "uploads" folder is set to permissions "777" for the upload to happen.

 

I'm pretty sure the ZIP application type is in the conf_,mime_types.php file.
