Download of PDF link in older Android legacy brwoser and Chrome

I've been investigating a problem that exists with people running not-the-latest Android tablets or phones. I am running PW 3.0.32, ProCache and Let's Encrypt SSL. Regardless of having nginx or apache web server the same problem exists. User clicks on a pdf link from my site, all they will get is blank screen. Nothing happens. No entries are found in either access or error logs or PW logs. 

This problem exists with Android stock browser and Chrome on Android version 4.4.2, but not with (latest version of) Opera on the same device. Maybe needless to say, but I cannot reproduce the error with iOS or OSX versions of the common browsers.

Maybe this is has nothing to do with PW, but I was not able to find any applicable sources for investigating the issue.

So any help or pointers would be appreciated. Thank you in advance :).

Only thing I can imagine is that you will need sending special HTTP headers for those browser / os combination. So, I don't know which one(s). That you need to investigate by googling, maybe?

If this is a way that turns out as a practicable workaround, we can show how to implement sending additional headers from within PW (templates).

Sorry, that I'm not able to tell you more. :)

@horst, thank you for your answer! That may be the one we need to do, must investigate it further.

We were able to narrow this issue a little bit. It seems that Apache mod_security2 with OWASP rules gave a few false positives. After disabling those rules one need to clear cache of android application, that can be done via settings -> application settings. That solved some of the cases.

However it did not fix the problem with Android 4.2.2 legacy browser. It does not get updated any more. A workaround is to install newer Google Chrome or equivalent which get updated from app store.

      Hi,
      I'm facing the issue where a customer has only 1GB of RAM on its server available (and doesn't want to upgrade).
      They have a few large files (videos) that they want on the website but when uploading via the processwire backend the progress bar gets stock after some time (assuming because it ran out of RAM).
      I see that files are saved to site/assets/files/1048 and 1048 being the page id. I tried uploading the files via ftp (to avoid the shortage of RAM) to the same folder but the images don't appear in the files field.
      I'm assuming the files field is just an array with the file names that are then searched in site/assets/files/1048 . Is there a way where I can have the field look for other files in that folder and have it automatically added to the array so it appears in the files field of the page?
      My attempt didn't work and I didn't quite understand why:
      $directory = "../../files/1048"; // files uploaded here via ftp $page->of(false); foreach (scandir($directory) as $file) { //go through all files if ($file !== '.' && $file !== '..') { echo $file; $page->file->add($file); } } $page->save(); $page->of(true);

      Hi there! And thanks for Processwire!
      It appears there's a possible bug in Processwire 3.0.170 concerning file and/or image inputfield. Creating such a field results in the following error:

      Fatal Error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function get() on null
      The inputfield is created however. The closer look reveals a problem at line 60 in wire\modules\Fieldtype\FieldtypeFile\config.php:
      if(!$value) $value = $fieldtype->get('defaultFileExtensions'); Commenting this line removes the problem, but the newly created inputfield requires 'Allowed file extensions' config option to be set (which is rather expectable since i commented the above-cited line of code). Never faced this problem before, hope it can be resolved.

      Chäs & Co is a b2b cheese trader. They love good cheese and are proud of their excellent knowledge und connections to small cheese producers. They maintain a custom made database and used to copy/paste (!) the cheese infos to the former CMS (Contao). Since substituting the database with ProcessWire was no option, they export now the database to a csv file and import it to the new website (expanded version of module ImportPagesCSV).
      From there, the pw magic begins. The staff works with the admin interface: They search and find products in notime using the build-in search field (using cheese names or id. Using ids only possible by adding hook, see this forum thread). They generate price lists easily based on a template, providing checkboxes and option buttons for some restrictions, choose i.e. the cheese origin and price audience (all implemented as page selectors). By saving the page a PDF list gets generated (using mpdf, a php pdf library).
      The visitors can sort and filter the products using a form by shuffle.js. Product details are shown in a popup (fancybox). There's also the option for generating a nice pdf data sheet. No CSS framework being used.
      Other modules used: ProcessJumpLinks, ProcessProMailer, ProcessWireUpgrade.
