Force file download instead of open in browser


We can configure apache servers to force download files instead of shown in browser window. For example if you want to download Image , MP3 file when you click on that file link , you can use following code in .htaccess file.

<FilesMatch "\.(mov|mp3|jpg|png|pdf)$">
 ForceType application/octet-stream
 Header set Content-Disposition attachment
</FilesMatch>
