    Replace $files with the original with your files.
    Replace $filenames with the filename people see when
    downloading (CAN be different then file's!!!)
    Replace $URL with your directory or the other URL.
    Replace $additional_info with the info on each file.

    That's all!!!


    $files=array( 'track01.mp3', 'escreen.exe');
    $filenames=array( 'Thank ABBA for the music.mp3', 'Escreen.exe');
    $additional_info=array( 'Various artists - Thanx ABBA for the music : 4978602 bytes', 'Shareware program to make a screenshot: 529920 bytes');
    $url= "/home/lemmen/public_html/data/";
    /* When the files are on another server, use the
    whole address (http://www.server.com/dir/) in stead of /home/lemmen... */

    $referer=ereg_replace( "\?.", "",$HTTP_REFERER);
    $thisfile= "http://$HTTP_HOST$PHP_SELF";

    if ($referer!=$thisfile){
    echo "<center><big>Homepage: <a href=\"http://home.support.nl/~lemmen\">http://home.support.nl/~lemmen</big><br><hr><br><br></center>";
    for ($i=0;$i<count($files);$i++)
    echo "<P><A HREF=\"$PHP_SELF?$i\">",$filenames[$i], "</A> $additional_info[$i]\n";
    else {
    $total=$url . $files[$i];
    Header ( "Content-Type: application/octet-stream");
    Header ( "Content-Length: ".filesize($total));
    Header( "Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=$filenames[$i]");
    Is the script safe to use? or is there a more secure script? or is there a safer way to do it? maybe with anouther server side scripting launguage?
