I have a friend who I'm trying to help out. I'm letting him upload 4 gig sized dvd file to my account. He then needs to let his clients be able to access a password protected area of my website so that they can download this dvd file. It's going to be able 15-20 people who need to download it from my account. This won't cause problems on the server... would it?
This is where he will send his clients to download the dvd files from here but it will be in a folder called "files":
Note: I'll be password protecting the above url and this is where his clients will have to download the dvd files from.
They will be "video_ts file" files.
I have a rather silly question here... but his clients WILL be able to download the file from the above URL, right? Because I opened notepad... typed some things into it and then saved it as a text document and then uploaded it. Then I went to the above URL and saw the file I had just uploaded and then tried to download it... but there was no way to download it?
Please help... if I waste his time and make him upload his 4gig dvd file and then he cannot download it from the above URL he's going to kill me... and I'm worried that 20 people downloading that huge 4 gig file from my account will cause problems on the server?
20 times 4 equals 80... does that mean I would be using 80 gig on my account? Oops wait a second... am I having a brainfart or would this be using 80 gig on my account? Maybe this wasn't such a good idea...
