The download_a_file.cgi script allows site owners to prompt their visitors to sign in prior to making any file downloads. It logs all download information into a text file database which can be viewed using the accompanying viewlog.cgi script. This is quite useful if the site owner intends to keep track of how many times each file is downloaded.
All downloads are logged. The full version of the script allows the site owner to view the log file using a web browser.
