    How can i make it so i can allow people to download files from a web page? I've tired to look this up but can't seem to find the info. It would be nice if i could make the download only accessible by pw, but its not necessary.

    I may have figured it out...do i just have to place the file in my ftp then link to that...would still be nice if there was a way to place a password on it...if anyone has any suggestions let me know..thanks

    I'm not expert but you can do a few things but let me give you the easy one.

    1. Create a folder in your root dir: like so www.yoursite.com/downloads/

    2. Upload all your zip files there.

    3. Set up a link to that dir.

    If you want a more secure and standard one email me.

    Or I think you could use html like this for the file you want to allow...
    <a href="path/filename.ext">Clickable Words</a>
