    Default hellp!! why is my file not being downloaded

    AAAAAAH! previosuly I had asked: "my file cannot be downloaded because whenever someone clicks it, it opens up a blank page ... its a wlp file and when someone clicks the link, i want it to be downloaded instead of opening up a blank page" ------

    so some nice person told me to zip the file and then it would work!! well, i zipped it up, and now the file isnt being uploaded cause it seems my web host doesnt let .zip files be uploaded..

    Does anyone have any suggestions, how can I allow this .wlp file to be downloaded once the surfer clicks the button?

    is there some kinda script or something i can use to make sure once the person clicks on the link, the file can be downloaded?

    any help would be greatly, greatly appreciated, thank you ...

    Change the extension, and then change it back on the server?
    Failing that, get a new host - I don't think much of one that doesn't allow some filetypes.
