difficulies with fopen

Postby reimar » Thu Jul 03, 2003 7:36 am

Hello,
I have some problems with the command fopen. after writing the correct password in a form, a new site should appear. But that doesn´t work. I tried the following:

<html>
<head>
<title>That´s the Login-File</title>
</head>
<body bgproperties="fixed" background="../background.jpg">
<?php
if (strstr($passwd, "1234")){ fopen ("http://omv-la.askoe.or.at/omv.la/news/writenews2.php", "r+b"); }
else { echo "wrong code"; }
?>
</body>
</html>

I tried it with several modes but they don´t work either.
Who can help me??

is there an error message?

if so, could you post it?


quick-fix (maybe) :

if you are using a form and passing the password to your script on the same page or another use $_GET['passwd'] or $_POST['passwd'] instead of $passwd to access the contents of the form variable. :lol:

fopen does not output anything to the browser it just opens the file out. What is it you are trying to do?

You might be better off using include()

also in checking passwords you can use

Code: Select all

if($password == "1234")
include("URL");
else
echo 'wrong code';
