Membership plugin. Download file throw 404, file not found.

Hi, I’m building a membership site. I have 2 access levels (free, paid). For the paid access, I add ‘download’ to the positive rules with the ‘defaults’ download group checked.

When I visit http://domain.dom/downloads/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/blank.pdf, I only get ‘404 — File not found.’ message. Please explain why this error thrown?

FYI, I’m on membership plugin version 3.0.2.

    Hi there and Welcome to the WPMU DEV Community!

    It would be super helpful if you could share a screenshot of your settings in the download area.

    Can you verify that you have Membership enabled? Are you getting to the url you provided above by clicking on an item or visiting it direct?

    Any more details would be great :slight_smile:
