PHP API file download using Apache
I have the credentials to access an API, I am able to access and make some calls that returns data with my PHP site. I have the URL and am sending the correct GET request and headers but I need an example of how to create a file download app.
The way I see it I will create a link that when I click on it in Firefox it will pop-up the box that asks me where I want to save the file. Where can I find an example that shows how to download content (zip archive in this case) from a 3rd party server using their API?
Are you looking for how to force a download dialog?
Or are you trying to save the contents of a remote file?
Ok, I have the part below:
$binaryF = $rsObject->makeCall('get', "/JobData/6530602", "?format=bin");
and it produces:
Making a call to:https://api.xxxxxx.com/JobData/6530602?format=bin
and below that some junk text - a lot. This I see as the visual representation of the actual zip file that I am supposed to download? How do I get the server to tell the browser what it is sending?
