    Default Downloading the outlook VCF card

    I have a link to download the VCF card.
    The link is showing strange text by clicking on it.

    It appears that the VCF file is opening directly in the browser -- at least it does in Firefox. In IE, it asks me if I want to Open or Save.

    You might want to try to force it to download rather than have it open (if that is your intent). I don't recall the exact methods for doing this, but I know it can be done. You can search this forum, as I know it's been discussed, or try Googling it.

    Adding the following line to the .htaccess file on your server appears
    to be the solution:

    AddType text/x-vcard .vcf

    Where can I find the file on the server. I have the file explorer in Cpanel open. I can not find the file. Is it hidden?

    Sometimes this file is hidden. I just checked on my host using "File Manger" from cPanel, and there is one only in the root directory (/public_html/ in my case). Depending on what you're doing, it is possible to have an .htaccess file in every directory, but usually you'll just have one in the root. Often these sorts of files are hidden, and you may need to change a preference to see it. Or your host may not allow it to be seen.

    It is just a plain text file, and has the name .htaccess with the leading "dot". If you don't have one, you can go ahead and create one. If you're going to create one, check with your host first to ensure you don't accidentally overwrite one that may be hidden.
