The extension that utilizes either X-Sendfile for Apache or X-Accel-Redirect for Nginx when downloading files.
OverviewBack to top
The XsendFile module utilizes either X-Sendfile for Apache, or X-Accel-Redirect for Nginx, when downloading files. It is used for downloadable products when customers start downloading a product. The extension sends X-Sendfile headers for Apache web servers or X-Accel-Redirects for Nginx web servers. X-accel allows for internal redirection to a location determined by a header returned from a backend.
This allows you to handle authentication, logging, or whatever else you please in your backend and then have NGINX handle serving the contents from the redirected location to the end user, thus freeing up the backend to handle other requests. This feature is commonly known as X-Sendfile.
You can find out more information about X-Sendfile feature in the Nginx documentation.
