    Hi, this code works like a charm, but after download a 11GB file, it warns me the file is corrupted.
    I tested the same file before upload to server, and it’s totally fine.
    Do you have any idea how to solve it?
    Thanks in advance.

    Have you tested it with a smaller file on your server?
    Here are steps to test.
    1. Test it with smaller file if that is also corrupt then download that file using ftp and see if that is fine. If file downloaded by ftp is also corrupt that means there is something wrong at file uploading.
    2. If the file downloaded by ftp seems fine then there might be spaces in download script, you can use ob_end_clean to clean up buffer before starting download.
