Concrete5 programmer needed!
1. I have a site that was maxing out my old server. I ended up having to move the site to a bigger more stable server.. but when I did the PDF links stopped working throughout the site.
This particular client needs to have these PDFs available for emergency room doctors and are currently liable for any issues that may arise from this.
The PDF links seem like they download fine.. but when you checked the files after downloading they all say unconfirmed download and won't open..
Here is an example of a page with links to PDFs that no longer work.
http://www.semproducts.com/product-catalog/prep-products/zero-voc-s... They seem to be pointed to a download_file directory that doesn't exist.. but that may just be C5 programming..
2. I also need to find out why it's maxing out my server. If I can fix this then I don't really need to fix #1.
As for the speed, upgrading will help but you might want to wait for 5.6.1 to be 'stable' because that version has attempted to remedy some of the speed issues.
Just a data point...
It seems that, in fact, the file (at least the one I was testing on) downloads only a portion. In my case the last few lines were
<rdf:Description rdf:about="" xmlns:xmp="http://ns.adobe.com/xap/1.0/"> <xmp:CreatorTool>PScript5.dll Version 5.2.2</xmp:CreatorTool> <xmp:ModifyDate>2013-01
Clearly not the complete file.
But it does mean that the file is getting grabbed. Also, chrome gives it a correct name, despite the fact that the URL only had the file id.
Both of these mean that the single page must be getting called, and done so in a relatively normal way.
How big are these files supposed to be? Are we talking a few mb? Or 10s of mb?
I would start looking at weird server issues (PHP timeouts, PHP (buffer) size timeouts (is there such a thing), low ram, low hard drive space, etc. ****Check the log files.****
I can take a look at this for you, but I gotta warn you in advance that I'm going to be wandering in the dark and it might take me 5 minutes or 5 hours. Also, I'd definitely need SSH access.
http://sem.agenity.com is using version 126.96.36.199 which tells me it's the new site and
http://www.semproduct.com is using version 5.5.1 which tells me it must be the old site.
Did you happen to make a copy of the 188.8.131.52 site and are running it on 5.5.1 core files? From a quick look at the core files, the download functions are not identical and might be setting the Mime Type incorrectly and confusing IIS 7.5

Not sure why chrome was still busted but i changed it and now.. viola.
