This is annoying. I can't write to files when fopening them with w, w+, a or even a+. My or exit() statement is excuted instead. However when I open it via r mode it works fine. So I assume it has problems writing. But is_writeable() return true!

What in the world can be happening? This is a Windows IIS server so I cannot chmod it, and nor can I ask the admin to change it. Any solutions?

try to change the file permission via your control panel... i think your cp is Plesk... so try it your self... every cp is having an option for file and folder permissions...

thank you,

Even though Windows has no CHMOD, it may be read-only, however since it's showing writeable, I don't know if that is possible.

On the off-chance that it's actually a problem with your code, care to post some of it - particularly the section where writing fails through to your exit().
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.

Thanks! It was read-only. I went into the CP (not Plesk just some other custom one). I added write permission onto that file so it works now. But I just have to figure out how to set permission to only one file rather than a directory.. Still don't know why is_writeable worked..
