I have a quick question. I'm using WordPress and would like to add a link on my page for people to download a file. Where should I store these files? Directly under public_html?

Thank you for your help.

Hello Chika-chan,

Thank you for your question. If you just want to freely share the file, then you can put it anywhere within the public_html folder. Here is a helpful guide on managing files on your server.

Also, I recently wrote a guide on selling downloadable or digital items in Wordpress using the WP e-Commerce plugin.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
