I think that it's just too many people trying at once, isn't it?

It is related to the number of people trying to access the file at once. Aweber limits the number of request to 60 per minute. I can optimize the code to minimize the number of requests per user. When I developed the code, I was not aware of the limitation so I do more request than I probably should (bad design on my part). Regardless, I don't think my tweaks will prevent the error from occurring, we have too many subscribers for such a low limit.

Downloaded the smaller version first, the larger version second. Both seemed to download, both ended up as damaged, unreadable files.

I've just tried multiple times, both links. My current internet speed is fast, yet I keep getting "Failed- Network error" and "Failed- server problem" messages. I guess you're being flooded with download requests. I'll try again soon.

I'm not sure whether Adrien was asking "me" to post a screenshot but here is one. Now, when I try to download the pdf file it will only save as a php file, an extension I'm not familiar with. What to do?

I think he meant a screenshot of the error.

Is the screenshot, showing the "error" messages, what you want to see? I just read that one can rename a php file as html and open in a web browser. So I tried that and it disappeared.

fwiw, here's my screenshot - (if I figure out how to include it. In case not, it's just a BLANK webbrowser, with "http://192.168.1.1:8181/http://richsoil.com/download-magazine.php" in the address bar. I tried deleting everything before the second http, didn't help. I tried changing php to html, took me to ...diatomaceous-earth.jsp) I'm clueless! And thanks in advance for your help!

Laura,

1. Please try starting at this address in Internet Explorer:
http://richsoil.com/permaculture-magazine.php

2. Enter your email address and hit the button.

3. You then will get a page with the download links.

4. Click on one of the download links, and then a small box will open at the bottom of your browser asking you to open or download. Either should work.

Did that work?

I don't get a download link. If I click on the link, I get a blank screen. If I reverse click, I get no download option. I'm feeling really 'challenged' (and need to leave this computer to get to the office today - so the 48 hour freebie will be gone before I can try some other way?)

it goes to a download window, but when I "save", and try to open what was saved, it's still nothing.

Laura, I switched over to IE to see if I could help. Click on 'Tools' in the tool bar at the top and then 'Delete browsing history'. You'll probably have to sign back in to permies though if you do that. you can do the same thing by clicking on the 'gear' symbol on the right then 'safety' then 'delete browsing history'. Either way you'll probably have to sign back in. In firefox I know how to delete just a specific 'cookie' but I don't see how to do that in internet explorer.

Thanks, Judith, I gave it a try, but that made no difference.

I am too burned out, and giving up on this one now. The ironic truth is I wouldn't have time to read the much of the magazine, anyway - I was going to glimpse at it, and then save it with the rest of my files for 'some day' and someone else (http://usebccinstead.info/FARM/)

Choosing my battles, this is not worth the fight. But thank you and EVERYONE else who tried!
