Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: [PHP / XML] Super-basic question

    [PHP / XML] Super-basic question

    Hi everyone, I'm trying to write a really simple XML database application that adds form input from a page into an XML file. I've done some XML parsing in PHP before, but my question is mainly, what's the easiest/most appropriate way to add to XML from form inputs? Do you read in the existing XML, add to it, and rewrite the file?

    Like I said, I have experience in parsing and getting a data structure, but what I'm not sure about yet is how to add to / update an XML file. Can anyone point out a specific example, tutorial or library? Thanks in advance!!

    I`m naff with XML so I`m just curious, why would you choose and XML file over a DB such as MySQL or MSSQL ?
