That works, but it just throws it in to a big loop and fills up the file, any suggestions?

What do you want it to do?

We have absolutely no idea exactly what you're trying to achieve - that was just a guess because you're posting a form and want the new values written to a file.

Ok, The fix is just doing something like this...

list($variable, $data) = explode("=", $x);

But now my problem is trying to figure out how to update that data with <form> post ect...

So the main page would get


It would read that info and put it in to a form field, which I have.

Now I gotta get it to take and make it so that a new value can be put in that field and updated back in to the text file. I have searched all over google for about 4 hrs looking for something like this but no go, any help would be appricated.

This is a simple example but it should work for you:

$new_textcontent = "";

foreach($_POST as $area => $value) {
  $new_textcontent .= $area . "=" . $value . "\n";

$fp = fopen($filename, 'w');
fputs($fp, $new_textcontent);
