Force File Downloading instead of Opening

When you use the Amazon S3 Cloudfront service, your WP STAGING backup files are stored on S3 CDN servers instead of your server.

As a result, your browser will open the WP STAGING *.wpstg backup files in your browser instead of downloading them.

You can force CloudFront to download certain files through the AWS console:

  • Select a wpstg file in S3.
  • Properties > Metadata > Add more metadata
  • Key: Content-Disposition Value: Attachment
  • Save
