There isn't an 'rb' modifier for fopen. That means more than likely your file isn't even being opened and read.

Your lack of error trapping would be why you have had difficulty finding the error.

You can check this by just changing this line:

Code: Select all

$file = fopen('users.txt', 'rb');

To This:

Code: Select all

if($file = fopen('users.txt', 'rb')){

     echo "Your file failed to open and you should feel bad about that.";
