switch(strtolower(substr(strrchr($file_name, '.'), 1))) {
case 'pdf': $mime = 'application/pdf'; break;
case 'zip': $mime = 'application/zip'; break;
case 'jpeg':
case 'jpg': $mime = 'image/jpg'; break;
default: $mime = 'application/force-download';
}
header('Pragma: public'); // required

header('Cache-Control: must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0');
header('Last-Modified: '.gmdate ('D, d M Y H:i:s', filemtime ($file_name)).' GMT');
header('Cache-Control: private',false);
header('Content-Type: '.$mime);
header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="'.basename($file_name).'"');
header('Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary');
