Reading Returns the file in an array. Each element of the array corresponds to a line in the file, with the newline still. I think PHP outputs some warning before PDF file body. Check that.

The problem is in deciding if the file is "corrupted".[^] look at this free, open source and small program called 'Recursive finder of corrupted PDF files' (download. When I try the same thing in PHP I'm getting a corrupted PDF. I tried putting my own HMTL to generate a PDF file and it's working but only under. However, it is pretty much clear from the error itself that your PDF document is corrupt or damaged. Let us discuss the causes of the corruption.

But, if the setting is unchecked, the output XML file will open up in a new window and there will be another blank window also open that has the address of the script, in addition to our original window.

This is far from ideal, and there is no way of knowing whether users have this option checked or not. But there are some headers, which PHP itself outputs automatically, disturbing this.

So I wrote this function with erasing these. I think that readfile suffers from the maximum script execution time. The readfile is always completed even if it exceed the default 30 seconds limit, then the script is aborted.

Be warned that you can get very odd behaviour not only on large files, but also on small files if the user has a slow connection. I wasted days trying to figure this out before I found the problem was easily solved.

I'm sure many of you out there have had similar problem when trying to use readfile to output images with a php file as the "src" of a "img" tag. It works fine "as is" in Firefox but not in IE, Safari or g.

I found hundreds of results on google all saying things like "there must be white space at the end of you code", "you need this header or that header". I couldn't believe what the solution was but here it is anyway! Remove the "Width" and "Height" attributes from your "img" tag.

Test especially for strings like ".. If possible only permit characters a-z, A-Z and and make it possible to only download from one "download-folder". Beware - the chunky readfile suggested by Rob Funk can easily exceed you maximum script execution time 30 seconds by default. I didn't benchmark further, but I'd be willing to bet non-mmap'able streams still win because they can loop in C instead of PHP.

If you are using the procedures outlined in this article to force sending a file to a user, you may find that the "Content-Length" header is not being sent on some servers.

The reason this occurs is because some servers are setup by default to enable gzip compression, which sends an additional header for such operations. This additional header is "Transfer-Encoding: Of course, this is not required if you are using the intelligent versions of readfile in this article.

A missing Content-Length header implies the following: The easiest way to disable this behaviour is with the following. SetEnv no-gzip dont-vary.

Elliott Brueggeman What's the point of a user's settings if not to determine their environment? If they have it set a specific way, honor their setting.

To use readfile it is absolutely necessary to set the mime-type before. If you are using an Apache, it's quite simple to figure out the correct mime type.

The way it is now, I get a corrupted download. The three operative lines in the download script are: Perhaps the variables I'm using in the download script? Some aberrant headers somewhere? Alvaro G Vicario.

Make you sure aren't adding any extra blanks. Hans van Kranenburg. I may discovered the problem. I was trying to use the same download script for "secure" and "public" downloads, like this: Nevertheless, I'm wondering if readfile will work the same with binary and text files.

Do I need to do anything differently for binary files? Vicario - Burgos, Spain -- Don't e-mail me your questions, post them to the group In any case, I got it working. I wrote a download script just for secure downloads and put the download script in cgi-bin and call it from the SSL-encrypted private page.

In some cases it is appropriate while in others it is probably not.

It has been a convenience the many times I have used it to push CSV files out to end users who wouldn't know enough to copy and paste the data from the browser window into a file and then save it. It is also handy for when you generate PDF files and want to push them to the user as a download rather than have it open up inside the browser window.

Not only does this make the PDF easier for the user to download, it also provides consistency for the way downloads are handled regardless of what browser plug-ins the user has installed. Again, in some cases it is appropriate to force a download, in others it is not. The Force Download Script After rigorous browser testing and code tweaking, here is the script I ended up with. All of the unnecessary stuff has been stripped out and it has been simplified as much as possible.

The Force Download Script

Users who are directed to the script will be prompted to download the appropriate file regardless of their browser and plug-in settings.Alvaro G Vicario.

So this is the proper chunked readfile which isn't really readfile at all, and should probably be crossposted to passthru , fopen , and popen just so browsers can find this information: If you are expecting PDF but the content type is specified incorrectly in the headers it may be what what causing your original issue perhaps.

Andrew Borell commented on Feb 24 I assure you it works in my own code, however I had originally coded it to get the data by URL instead of writing an html file to disk.

Anyway this problem should probably appear in the documentation. However, it is pretty much clear from the error itself that your PDF document is corrupt or damaged. Is it zero bytes? Sometimes while trying to open a PDF document you may encounter the following error message:
