// place this code inside a php file and call it f.e. "download.php"
$_GET['download_file']='websiteData.csv';
$path = $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']."/wedev/"; // change the path to fit your websites document structure
$fullPath = $path.$_GET['download_file'];
if ($fd = fopen ($fullPath, "r")) {
$fsize = filesize($fullPath);
$path_parts = pathinfo($fullPath);
$ext = strtolower($path_parts["extension"]);
switch ($ext) {
case "pdf":
header("Content-type: application/pdf"); // add here more headers for diff. extensions
header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=\"".$path_parts["basename"]."\""); // use 'attachment' to force a download
break;
default;
header("Content-type: application/octet-stream");
header("Content-Disposition: filename=\"".$path_parts["basename"]."\"");
}
header("Content-length: $fsize");
header("Cache-control: private"); //use this to open files directly
while(!feof($fd)) {
$buffer = fread($fd, 2048);
echo $buffer;
}

fclose ($fd);
