resource add file is not working

I have a gmod dark RP server and for the life of me have not been able to get this to work.

I have this in the autorun folder

the corresponding files are in the addons folder

if (SERVER) then
  resource.AddFile( "models/humans/nypd1940/male_01.mdl" )
  resource.AddFile( "models/humans/nypd1940/male_02.mdl" )
  resource.AddFile( "models/humans/nypd1940/male_03.mdl" )
  resource.AddFile( "models/humans/nypd1940/male_04.mdl" )
  resource.AddFile( "models/humans/nypd1940/male_05.mdl" )
  resource.AddFile( "models/humans/nypd1940/male_06.mdl" )
  resource.AddFile( "models/humans/nypd1940/male_07.mdl" )
  resource.AddFile( "models/humans/nypd1940/male_08.mdl" )
  resource.AddFile( "models/humans/nypd1940/male_09.mdl" )
  resource.AddFile( "materials/models/humans/nypd1940/cop_sheet.vmt" )
  resource.AddFile( "materials/models/humans/nypd1940/cop_sheet.vtf" )
  resource.AddFile( "materials/models/humans/nypd1940/cop_sheet_n.vtf" )
  resource.AddFile( "materials/models/humans/nypd1940/mip_cpoli1d.vmt" )
  resource.AddFile( "materials/models/humans/nypd1940/mip_cpoli1d.vtf" )
end

But when my friend connects it doesnt download it.

Do you have them properly uploaded to your webhost?
And when you say corresponding files are in the addons folder, do you mean it would look like addons/models/humans/nypd1940/male_01.mdl or addons/somefolder/models/humans/nypd1940/male_01.mdl

yes, see here it is on the webhost

and its the second one

addons/1940cop/models/humans/nypd1940/male_01.mdl

is that why?

Do i just put the contents of 1940cop such as the lua models and materials folder in the addons?

edit: I have also tried it like this

resource.AddFile( "1940cop/models/humans/nypd1940/male_03.mdl" )

still to no avail

Post your sv_downloadurl.

[editline]24th August 2014[/editline]

Make sure the files are BZipped on your webhost.

sv_downloadurl “http://50.31.22.24/50.31.22.24-27015

these are different, could that be the problem?

I havent BZipped anything nor do I know how to do that, anything you could show me?

On your webhost, try not putting it in addons/materials, etc, just in materials. But keep it as it is on the server

Content must be in .bz2 format on your webhost.

Content in the addons folder?

On your webhost, not on your server.

Can you elaborate a bit more? What do I need to do?

Use the program there to zip each individual file on your webhost.
