.php downloading instead of .pdf

Post by Jon » Dec 5th, '20, 13:09

When I try and download .pdf file on my android phone using Adobe the files download as .php. I have unistalled Adobe, restarted .y phone but the issue remains.

An example is cruising the East Coast thread with .pdf inserted bt Duncan.

Searching the issue I have been given this advice by Adobe,

'It's an extention of web-pages created by PHP scripts. Maybe you should contact the admins of the site in question and report the problem to them if you're expecting a PDF file and are getting a PHP page instead'

Are you able to help?

Do you have separate PDF reader installed?
What browser is being used?

My typical browser is Duck Duck Go.

Just tried Chome and it works as .pdf. So it was a browser issue, thanks.

Thanks for the confirmation. There was a history of this issue back in 2015 but was fixed in the version the site is running.
