    Default Downloadable Files

    I hope I'm in the right thread here!

    I have the Zen Cart Book just so that you know.

    I am trying to have downloads for my customers when they purchase an item it
    can be downloaded. Now my problem is Step 2 on page 213 of the book tells me
    to make sure that the <zc-home>/download directory exists on the server. If
    you do not see the directory, check the following line in your <zc-home>/includes/configure.php
    file to see which directory your downloadable file should be in.

    Now where do I find this?

    Please understand that I am learning this as I go.

    When I open my Core I have the following and need to know where I go from here?

    And if that file doesn't exist, then how do I make one.

    thanks again,

    You'll find your "download" folder under the "public_html" folder, along with all the rest of your Zen Cart files.
