    FTP download programming problem


      Thanks in advance for anyone's help on this. The programming was working fine for a good while and, with no changes to the programming has suddenly quit working. Everything seems to be set up just fine. The files are uploading to the ftp root directory on the server end and everything (file name and etc.) is going in the database as well.

      When you click the download link on the website for that particular file the browser goes to a blank browser page. The address bar refers to the correct template with the correct download name but it's just a blank browser page.

      I'm including the programming below of the download template since all the other code seems to be working okay. I've changed some of the names but the programming is the same.

      Thanks again for any response on this. I'll repost if there's a solution to let y'all know...
