    I need to design a page for a singer's website that will allow visitors - for a fee - to download his music. How do I do this? (This is legal. The guy owns all necessary copyrights, etc.) Website is www.paulcraver.com.

    How will embedding an MP3 file into a web page allow only people who have paid the required fee to download the files?

    Hello,
    What you can do is this. You have to have them be able to login to a secure place once they have paid to become a member.

    Then you can use a Download Content PHP PRogram wit a MySQL Database or SQL Database and do it that way.

    Or you can just create a page for members with the following commands that will allow them to download.


    <a href="/folder/folder/FILENAME.MP3">SongName</a>

    And That link text will give them the ability to download the desireed file.

    You could create a password protected directory with .htaccess, and allow give them a username/password to download the MP3s. That would probably be the easiest way to do it.

    You can use Dynamic Drive's generator and then simply upload that file to your server and the directory you want.
