I have a directory of text files that I'm serving out with apache 2. Normally when I (or any user) access the files they see them in their browser. I want to 'force'* the web browser to pop up a 'Save as' dialog box. I know this is possible to do with the
Content-Disposition headers (more info).
Is there some way to turn that on for each file?
Ideally I'd like something like this:
<Directory textfiles> AutoAddContentDispositionHeaders On </Directory>
And then apache would set the correct content disposition header, including using the same filename.
Something like this might be possible with the apache
Bonus points if it's included by standing in apache in debian.
I could do a simple PHP wrapper script that takes in a
filename argument, makes the call to
header(...) and then prints the file, but then i have to validdate input etc. that's work I'm trying to avoid.
* I know you can't actually force things when it comes to the web
