Download progress doesn't appear

  • Answered

Whenever someone downloads a zip, msi, or dmg file from my server, the download progress does not appear. This happens in every browser I've tried. I can download files from other servers and the progress appears just fine.

Any idea what's causing this?

Hi Noah,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you. I tested this out at and downloaded the ZIP file on the page. I'm using Chrome web browser and the download progress appears at the bottom of the browser. Is this what you are referring to?

I've also tested this is FireFox and the progress popup appears on the screen without issue. At this point, there's two scenarios that may be happening.

Either you're downloading at a high rate of speed and the download finishes before the progress can be shown or there's settings you have set to not display the progress in downloads.

This appears to have nothing to do with the server in general. However, if you'd like be to look into this further, please provide me with the steps so I can attempt to replicate the issue you are having.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.
