'w+' - Open for reading and writing; place the file pointer at the beginning of the file and truncate the file to zero length. If the file does not exist, attempt to create it.
Change it to "r" since you are only reading. Also check to make sure your pathing is correct. --- Brad Dameron Network Account Executive TSCNet Inc. www.tscnet.com Silverdale, WA. 1-888-8TSCNET > -----Original Message----- > From: phper [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]] > Sent: Tuesday, August 27, 2002 2:03 PM > To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] > Subject: [PHP] file reading > > > how do I read the contents of a file. > > $FileStream = fopen("webmaster/forum".$Forum."/forumtopics.txt", "w+"); > $line = fgetss ($FileStream, 255); > print ("number is: ".$line." <br> "); > > fclose($FileStream); > > always returns nothing > > > > -- > PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) > To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php > > -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
