include \"db.php\";


$nu = @fopen(\"phonenumber.txt\", \"r\")

or die(\"<br>Failed to open file: <i>phonenumber.txt</i>.\");

$array = file(\"phonenumber.txt\");



$nu = @fopen(\"userlist.txt\", \"r\")

or die(\"<br>Failed to open file: <i>userlist.txt</i>.\");

$array1 = file(\"userlist.txt\");

for ($i=0; $i<count($array); $i++)


$myquery = \"INSERT into totalled (phoneNumber, user, password) VALUEs (\'$array[$i]\', \'$array1[$i]\', \'$array2[$i]\')\";
