I can upload, but how do I download a file????

Hello,

The following code grabs the url of a file location on the net from a db
on my server for a file download.
// connection to grab url of the file
mysql_select_db($database_local, $local);
$query_dllink = sprintf("SELECT dllink FROM software WHERE swid =
%s",$colname_dllink);
$dllink = mysql_query($query_dllink, $local) or die(mysql_error());
$row_dllink = mysql_fetch_assoc($dllink);
$totalRows_dllink = mysql_num_rows($dllink);
?>

So I've gone and grabbed the location.

I then stick this following bit in between the header sections on my
html page, note I am trying to kick of the download.

<? echo "<META HTTP-EQUIV=\"refresh\" CONTENT=\"6;
URL=http://\"$row_dllink\" \">"; ?>

This all work on paper but nothing happens. Basically I want to grab a
file location url from my db and then start to download that file to the
user. I am not sure if I am doing this right at all so help would be
appreciated.

Any ideas?

tia.

I'd imagine browsers would like what comes after 'URL=' to be
an address, but you have an extra set of quotes around
$row_dllink. That's what happens when you complicate things.
