Downloadable products - verifying correctness

How to verify Zen Cart Downloadable products

Once you have created downloadable products, or after you have updated them, you’ll want to check on them to be sure they will work for your customers. There are a couple of ways to do this. It is also particularly important to do this if you move the download folder for security reasons.

Downloads Manager

Going to Admin > Catalog > Downloads Manager shows a screen with two downloadable products. Note that the first download (named test.zip) is missing, which is shown by the red dot next to the filename.

Attributes Controller

Going to Admin > Catalog > Attributes Controller and viewing a single product which has downloads allows you to see if the downloadable files are present where they should be. In the image below, you can see again that the file test.zip is missing.
