Question on fopen, fwrite..
Posted 19 May 2006 - 01:39 PM
1.update mysql database (table:user_info)
2.opens a single xml file (dummy.xml) and re-writes the whole structure whenever they update their info..
That particular xml file(dummy.xml) contains all the information from a table(user_info) from the database.
my question is what if there are two or more members updating their info at the same time (in-directly attempting to update the dummy.xml file at the same time) would that be a problem? like one of the member didnt get their info updated on the xml ?
do let me know if you need to look at the codes

Why do you want to use xml if you have a mysql connection?
And take a look at this:
