Downloads are not working

In several topics I noticed that downloads are not working, giving the message “The page you requested doesn’t exist or is private.” For example in this topic when attempting to download the attachment.

Thats odd. Ive fixed the problem now though. I was looking for a way to delete the post.

@Helvetosaur has also been seeing this. @sam and @zogstrip, can you help?

Wait, you deleted the attachment after fixing your problem, or you fixed the download in the topic?
(cause it’s still not working for me)

I couldnt find how to delete it.

To fix the error: Cancel the download and try again. Instead of clicking the file to download , right-click the link and select Save link as. Be sure to download files to a place on your computer you can access, like your Desktop or Documents folder. Also try soundcloud playlist downloader which can let you download your soundcloud playlist in just a click.

“The page you requested doesn’t exist or is private” does pop up again when I try to download files from numerous threads! Videos seem to be blacked out, not loaded!
Is there currently a problem with the site?

Yes I’m seeing that a lot too recently.

Here, for instance:

Yes, there’s clearly something wrong with Discourse. It’s still very early on the West Coast and so we’ll have to wait a bit longer before getting to the bottom of this.

In the following thread an old script of mine is no longer available either…

All - this should be working again now. Let us know if you see something wrong.
