Limit Download Speed w/ Php

3 New Member
Hey, I need a script that will limit download speed and I want it integrated into the script I am using below. The script below forces downloads and hides url paths and logs stastics of downloads and displays them. I want to make it so if I import this script using the include header that it will also limit the download speed for files on my site to 20kbps. I don't want to have to include any fancy stuff in the <a href> tag. I have attached the php file as a txt file. Thanks.

Heya, Bigpoppa.

PHP isn't really the tool for this. Try using Apache to throttle the bandwidth (apache throttle bandwidth - Google Search).

I have only 1m records in my database running on a laptop of speed 1.6GHz, memory 512MB ram, and Toshiba MK8032GAX hard disk. I use 'LIMIT x,10' for the query to utilise record paging.
