Attaching a local file to a package using the API

My understanding is that in order to upload a file to a package using the API, this file needs to reside in the “wp-content/uploads/download-manager-files” directory. That is a problem for me because I would like to upload files that reside on my computer.

Is there a workaround that would allow me to attach local files to a package using the API?

For example, I was thinking that maybe I could first upload my local file to “wp-content/uploads/download-manager-files” (using some API), and then attach it to the package. Is this possible? How can I upload a file to this directory using the API?

Any other solutions are welcome.

Best regards,




Hello, Roco Montgomery

Hope you are well and thanks for contacting us.

Yes, you are right, file should reside here wp-content/uploads/download-manager-files. For uploading the file you may follow this documentation.

You can add your files using ftp to the download-manager-files. Unfortunately, there is no other solution right now. We will update this REST API add-on soon.
