    1- How can i increase 64MB file size under protect content -> files.

    2- I have loaded some software's outside of public_html folder I want those software to only available for my members under pages content.

    Those software are huge over 500MB - 900MB i copied them under application/data folder then rename software with point (.) and when i make hyperlink (via ftp i took folder path) in content -> pages that URL did not worked.

    lets say i get this and URL did not work because loaded via ftp: members/data/.ipad.ipsw ( loaded via ftp )

    and this file works well downloads.4f8dc23f8bdfe as i loaded it via amember CP - > content - > files - > upload.

    Can u please guide me what is the best way of moving software files under /members/data/ folder and easily link those files/software in page content.

    Why add the '.' to the filename? It will make them hidden to many ftp programs and could also cause confusion then other scripts call them.

    anneyoung,
    Upload files to /amember/data/upload folder, then go to aMember CP -> Protect Content -> Files -> New Record -> Browse -> Disk and select file that should be protected.
    thehpmc,
    In fact to hide then from FTP clients :) This is true only for files uploaded through aMember, in order to limit abaility to remove these files through ftp client.

    It is available as upgrade pack on https://www.amember.com/amember/member -> V4.2 (beta)
    Current version is 4.2.2

    - Download upgrade pack for version 4.1.15.
    - Unpack and upload to your FTP;
    - Login to aMember admin area, it will offer you to upgrade database structure;
