Notes: WordPress Download File Instead of Opening In Browser

Check the PHP Version

Make sure your server is using the correct and updated/latest version, this can be done by checking your cPanel (for Linux servers).

If the above still doesn’t work, check your .htaccess

Sometimes the PHP version is also added there and make sure it has the same version as your server settings, it usually looks like this:

WordPress Download File Instead of Opening In Browser

I have seen this in cases where a caching plugin was enforcing gzip compression but the server was not configured to support it.

So, disable the caching plugin or replace it or troubleshoot WordPress.

If it still doesn’t work, contact support.
