How to download file on android with PHP force download

I make an application , this can download file form server.

use this code >>>

public int startDownload(String url, String filename) {
// create url connector
URL u;
byte[] buffer = new byte[1024];
try {
u = new URL(url + filename);
HttpURLConnection c = (HttpURLConnection) u.openConnection();
c.setRequestMethod("GET");
c.setDoOutput(true);
c.connect();
InputStream in = c.getInputStream();
m_lMaxDownloadSz = c.getContentLength();
FileOutputStream f = new FileOutputStream(new File(FILE_PATH, filename));

m_bCancelDownload = false;
m_lCurrentDownloadSz = 0;
int len = 0;
while ((len = in.read(buffer, 0, 1024)) > 0) {

// if download is canceled.
if (m_bCancelDownload) {
f.close();
c.disconnect();
return FILE_DOWNLOAD_CANCELED;
}
if (knot++ >= PROGRESS_STEP) {
knot = 0;
myProgressDialog.setProgress(GetDownloadStatus());
}
f.write(buffer, 0, len);
m_lCurrentDownloadSz += len;
}

f.close();
c.disconnect();

} catch (Exception e) {
return FILE_DOWNLOAD_FAILED;
}

if (GetDownloadStatus() == 100) {
return FILE_DOWNLOAD_FINISHED;
} else {
return FILE_DOWNLOAD_FAILED;
}


}

I discover for my answer android-Java Code __example:

        byte[] buffer = new byte[1024];         
        String url = "http://www.bla-bla.com/forcedownload.php"


            DefaultHttpClient client = new DefaultHttpClient();
            HttpGet httpGet = new HttpGet(url);
            try {
                HttpResponse execute = client.execute(httpGet);
                InputStream content = execute.getEntity().getContent();

                filesize = execute.getEntity().getContentLength();
                fileOutput = new FileOutputStream(new File(FILE_PATH, "file_copyformserver.apk"));

                 while ((len = content.read(buffer, 0, 1024)) > 0) {
                     fileOutput.write(buffer, 0, len);
                     Thread.sleep(100);
                 }

                fileOutput.close();


            } catch (Exception e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
            }

php file __example:

      $file = '/home/bla-bla/domains/bla-bla.com/file/file.apk'; //not public folder
      if (file_exists($file)) {
         header('Content-Description: File Transfer');
         header('Content-Type: application/vnd.android.package-archive');
         header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename='.basename($file));
         header('Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary');
         header('Expires: 0');
         header('Cache-Control: must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0');
         header('Pragma: public');
         header('Content-Length: ' . filesize($file));
         ob_clean();
         flush();
         readfile($file);
         exit;
     }

this is short code , sorry if cannot run. :)
