Default Geeker Questions...

Is there any way to make Geeker work with large files (around 20megs)?

Are the files uploaded in the Product Manager (geeker) stored in the database or file system?

Is there any way to make it use a folder that is above the webroot?

Thanks!

Yeah, I tried to use Geeker, but found out I couldn't, cause it wouldn't upload my files. I don't remember there being anything about the maximum file size, and I don't actually recall any error. It just didn't work.

huh, thats odd bunny.
They are stored in the database, so I suspect that large files would be a bit sketchy. You could possibly edit the field type though to accomidate a larger file.Not sure if it would work though.

Yeah, it just hung and never proceeded for me. My band has MP3s that we sell online, I have them individually zipped, but none of them will work with Geeker.

It doesn't stop, it just stays acting like it's uploading for hours. Actually, I let it run from afternoon one day, and then went to bed, woke up, and it was still going...so that's like 12 hours or so.

If there were a way to point it to an already uploaded file behind the www folder, that would be really radical.

Ill look into it. I did look into it awhile ago for another user and found a possible way to do it. The key problem is that if the file is in the file system, its easier to fake the url and download it without being in the right usergroup. Anyhoo, ill look into it... but it may not be for a few weeks.

That's cool. Thanks.

I hacked up a solution before you ever did Geeker. And it works ok for now, but will take a lot of work to add or change any products for download.

That would be great!

The site that I put GeekMart on will have digital scrapbooking kits; they are zip files with large images...between 5 and 40 megs usually.

I was using a script called "Secure Downloads" from shackrats hideout, but it has been abandoned apparently. It allowed you to specify a folder that was above the webroot that the files were stored in, therefore only accessible using the script.
