Access text files over a network and displaying them

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am not sure I am on the right lines here but I want to display the contents of some text files using PHP on a web page. 

I have tried mapping a drive directly to the text files, so they have their own path instead of a network name, I have tried using a network name and this doesn't work either.

Is the only way to copy the files to a local directory and then display them - This I can get to work quite easily.

Thanks - Any help would be great,
John

Is this a Windows network? Could you not map a network drive to the target machines directory holding the files, and then access them with the mapped drive letter?

I tried that but an error message appears saying "permission denied".  The folder has "Everyone" - full permission, set so it can't be an authentication problem.
