    a bit of php help

    I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction here, Basically i want a web form that would write the contents to a file. Every time the form is submitted, that contents of the form would replace what was currently in the file.

    I'm assuming I'll be using fwrite but if someone could point me where to look for more info I'd appriciate it.

    Thanks, Pam

    you could try...

    PHP Code:
    <?PHP

    $data 
    $_POST["data"];

    system('rm -rf datafile'); system('touch datafile'); system('echo "$data" > datafile');

    ?>
    then, in the html code for the form you could do something like...

    Code:
    <textarea name="data"></textarea>

    Make sure to have permissions set on datafile set to 777.

    PHP Code:
    if($submit) {
       
    $fp fopen("file.txt""w");
       
    fputs($fp"$_POST['data']");
       
    fclose($fp);
       
       echo 
    "Form Submitted, thanks!";

    data being the input name from your form, if you have several do something like

    $data = "".$_POST['input1']."<br>".$_POST['input2']."";

    and

    fputs($fp, "$data");

    or whatever

    Loon's code is what I would use as well. Not sure about the other.
