The component offers a list of files to download, but it can connect to Virtuemart products. The function works along with the module dedicated for Virtuemart - when a customer access one of Virtuemart products that he/she purchased the module gives the option to download the file(s) or to received each of them by mail (there can be more files attached to one Virtuemart products as consecutive versions of one software product or several files in one greater project).
You can offer files to download for free or for some price paid via paypal.
"The file is uploaded to a protected folder and from there it is copied to a temporary cache folder?"
What logic is that?
I want to sell music albums of which some are 1 gigabyte each, is this plugin going to be copying those files around on my paid server?
In total I have 240 gigabytes of music albums - try copying those around on my server and my account will be suspended!
Weird logic, Weird idea - Forget it!
Thanks for reminding me to update the description over here. :)
