OK, figured it out and wanted to share the solution here.
First off I want to thank Luke and the team at Tips and Tricks. They were helpful and offered to check out my site and see if there was anything they could do to help. I also want to add I am three year plus user of eStore and love it.
I ended up going back and checking EVERYTHING and it seemed to come down to a setting in the eStore plugin for digital downloads
The specific setting was a checkbox under the Digital Content Details section of the product. Specifically the “Downloadable” checkbox was the issue. Turned it off and everything worked.
I have always had it on since I started the store and couldn’t find any info on what exactly it does beyond giving an anonymous link. Thing is, it seems to still give an anonymous link anyway from my testing whether it is on or off (I host my own digital files locally on my own site).
Don’t know what was going on there but that worked and W3 Total Cache and eStore seem to be working fine. Still looking on the forums for what that setting exactly provides since I don’t know what security I might be missing.Maximillion6Member
Hey all – had some problems with file downloads.
I’m using the store plugin to sell multiple PDF books packaged in a single RAR for easy download.
Have W3 Total Cache installed and did all the steps listed here (added exceptions and turned off the gzip compression).
Still have a problem with file downloads. Basically every file is turning into a 1k download and the RARs are corrupted. Not sure why this is happening and could use some advice. Clearly one of the two (caching or store) are causing problems.
Quick note – turning off caching eliminates the problem as you might guess
