X_send_file - What is file path?


#1

Hello. I’m using x_send_file plugin with Apache on a production
server, but I don’t seem to have the right path to the file I want to
download. I searched this forum for clues, but I can’t find the
answer.

This doesn’t seem to work, nor anything else I’ve tried… can anyone
help?

x_send_file(’#{RAILS_ROOT}/public/downloads/file_name.mov’)

I keep getting “Cannot read file” error. If I use double quotes on
the file path, I get a 1 byte file download with the file name… the
download file definitely exists and is in the right location as I can
use the built in send_file to download the file perfectly. But
because these video files are large, I don’t want to use RoR to
download them.

I don’t know much about x_send_file, but you’re using single quotes so
the #{} isn’t interpolated
