Error While Uploading Downloadable Products

I am using Magento Ver 1.8.0, I tried to add Downloadable Products. But when I try to add the file (Sample and File) in Downloadable Information it stops me to upload those file, with an Error Message "Upload HTTP Error" and "Upload I/O Error".

Have you check that your media and var magento folders ahs write permissions?

 

 

Re: Error While Uploading Downloadable Products

Those errors are not typical of permission issues.

 

Is your site running a SSL?

Re: Error While Uploading Downloadable Products

As of now I am working on localhost, I thoight it might be because of SSL issue, but my concerned was if I didn't get that problem while adding simple products then why I got the this problem whicle adding downloading products.

 

Here, I want to ask one more thing, can I do it like I will give users the option to download the product for free but when they install that it ask for the key for activation and they have to purchase the product then.

Re: Error While Uploading Downloadable Products

Hello,

 

What product is it you are selling?

 

The functionality of activation codes must be built in to the software that you are selling, this cannot be handled by Magento.

 

If you are allowing free download of the software Magento cannot restrict use once it has been downloaded from your server.

 

But you can offer the product as a free downloadable product and then have a license as a download product that issues a activation code?

 

This all depends on what software you are actually selling.

 

Kind Regards

Re: Error While Uploading Downloadable Products

Thank you for the support. Well I'll sell both hard shipped products as well as software which will be downloaded. 

 

Re: Error While Uploading Downloadable Products

What are the downloadable products?

 

You could offer the downloadable products in a password secured Zip file and sell the password via the license product?

 

Just an idea, maybe not the best way to go about it.

 

Anyone else want to step in?

It will be softwares. Password secured zip file is a good option, will consider it.
