I am trying to create a text file in the desktop.I created an included path using set_include_path() but the file is created in my xampp/htdocs folder.How can i create the folder in my desktop??Is it possible??
set_include_path(',;c:/users/shimantta/Desktop'); echo file_put_contents("/test.txt","Hello World. Testing!",FILE_USE_INCLUDE_PATH);
The include path is the path that PHP searches when you include/require a file, not when you write to a file.
include_path Specifies a list of directories where the require, include, fopen(),
file(), readfile() and file_get_contents() functions look for files.
Just give the complete path:
file_put_contents("c:/users/shimantta/Desktop/test.txt", "Hello World. Testing!");
This will only work if the user running the script or the user running the webserver has permission to write to that directory.
